14 by 20 inches, fluid acrylics on coldpress watercolor paper.

I finished painting this on Monday night. It is 14 by 20 inches on coldpress watercolor paper.  I used four colors - primary yellow, primary magenta, turquois (phthalo) and paynes gray.  Normally hawks are solitary creatures, but I came up with an interesting composition that I wanted to use.  The larger hawk is the clear subject, the other hawk in the background is intentionally muted and lower in contrast.  All the paint is transparent, I generally stay away from opaque paint when working on watercolor paper.  I hope all of you are staying safe and healthy! finished painting this last night.

Also I plan on launching my kickstarter on June.  This pandemic is not going anywhere so I might as well try to raise the funds needed for printing this summer.  I will keep all of you informed as June approaches.
