There are few things in this world as beautiful as a falcon perched over her mountains. I tried to capture just a little bit of that with this painting.

Mostly a bit of something to break this bit of artist's block I've gotten myself into. I tried to do something I haven't done in a while - a realistic raptor, no fantasy involved.

Watercolor on cold-pressed watercolor paper, about 6.5 X 10.5 inches

Absolutely gorgeous. I love watercolours so much, and the way you've used them to create the clouds is fantastic!

Very beuatiful. I like the contrast between the detail on the rocks and feathers with the plain sky.

A lot of it was the graphite drawing underneath, with some darker tones of ultramarine violet, indigo, and raw umber. Thanks! :)

"There are few things more beautiful", what do you mean few things more beautiful than a falcon perched over her realm? There is NOTHING more beautiful than that! Anyways yes, that is one way to get rid of the artist block, draw what you really want to draw. It is nice to see a realistic falcon actually. I like to see real falcons, with no kitty parts attached to them (nothing against griffins, or lions for that matter, but yeah, I see a lack of truly well drawn falcons on DA). Very nicely done, you made her look like she is in charge!

nice! really great feeling around the whole picture, but the falcon is a little small with such a lot of background around it for me. you find some inspiration then?

I was trying to get a feeling of the vastness of the area. :) And yes, I think I've found some inspiration. Thanks!
