Red-tailed Hawk

This is a pencil drawing of a Red-tailed Hawk taking on a rattlesnake; still in progress.

Painting in progress: Pale Male the Red-tailed Hawk

A scan from an HP scanner, so quite a bit grainy to my chagrin; Pale Male, the Red-tailed Hawk (Buteo jamaicensis) of Central Park fame. Will work on it some more, thinking of keeping the background sedate and the tree mainly grey.

Kestrel drawing

Above is a Kestrel, Falco sparverius, work in progress, pencil on paper.  It is one of the works for the upcoming Eagles, Hawks and Falcons of the City of New York.
