Sparrowhawk work in progress


I've finally made a start on Brian Rafferty's Sparrowhawk photo (thanks Brian!) - Ann mentioned in my last post that she thinks my sparrowhawk is playing games with me and I think she's right - just a brief glimpse yesterday before he flew away!  - I will get a photo of him one day!!  I'm trying to put a bit of detail in this one while still keeping a fairly painterly style and after this I'll have a go at a looser, splashy version! - I'm quite liking how this is going so far and just hope I don't ruin it! - leaving this for now as it's an early start in the morning to drive up to the Lake District for a good walk - I can't wait to get out in those hills!  Have a lovely Friday everyone!

  1. Can't wait to see this beauty when you've finished it Sharon, and by the way, the Greenfinch below is certainly no 'howler'....brilliant.

  7. This is looking really good, Sharon. You've passed the worst part and I have no doubt you will make a super painting here. I too have notices a degree of detail working it's way into my work but I feel there is a place for detail and impressionism to work hand in hand. I hope you are enjoying the Lakes, we spent many a summer at Ullswater ... hope the weather is kinder to you than it is in Scotland at the moment. Tc ~X~
