Quick, watercolor-smashy practice piece to try out different techniques. Trying to let the watercolor do more work instead of trying to force it to do what I want it to do!

Love the bright blue--makes the peregrine markings even more striking than usual, plus it's light enough to see the details. I think doing the eye in brown instead of orange keeps it the right tone (bright orange or yellow with the blue would be a little overwhelming). I'm amazed at the precise detail you're able to get from watercolors. Beautiful piece--I think it captures the fierce, arrogant, yet dignified nature of a peregrine, and it's very beautiful.

A wonderful painting. I think you have accomplished a free flowing, natural blending of color, with your washes. I wish, for composition, that the talons didn't touch the bottom of the edge. The few sharp edges are gorgeous with the soft washes as contrast. The shapes are perfect and the color choices are dynamic. A really nice art work. Thank you for inspiring and sharing your vision, beautiful!

This is really lovely and loose, not quite as... specific as your usual watercolour pieces. I quite like it.

Thanks! It was really hard for me to keep the loose parts and not add a ton of detail to them! I kept feeling like the piece was unfinished, but eventually I accepted that it was okay to leave areas loose :D
