Harris Hawk Pastel

I did this pastel from a photo taken two years ago in the desert near Tucson, Arizona. This is the second bird I have done and I believe that my representation of feathers is improving.

After the first session I had the background done (I thought) and the bird well delineated.

I had the bird fairly well filled in by the end of the second session.

Here's the finished picture. I had to lighten the background which was a real pain but, as it was before, the hawk didn't really stand out.

Here a detail of the head.

It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see.
