Tawny owl & Duck studies-Nymphenburg Park

After weeks of snowfalls, stormy winds and darkness the sun is back! It was a sunny but a very cold day today, with temperatures below and around zero..
At least there was no wind at all, such a peaceful feeling! I couldn´t miss the chanec to go back to the Park to look after the Owls. I saw at least four and managed to sketch two of them. On my way back to the car I spotted in the small half-frozen lake in the front of the Palace among many Tufted & Pochard ducks, a Ferruginus duck, a real rarity for Germany...

Studies of master portraits

Bonelli`s eagle painting

The Boneli`s eagle is definitely my favorite raptor. Though a rare sighting in Europe, I was lucky enough to observe, study  and sketch them in the wild five years long.
In one of these visits I saw the female sitting in the distance against the sea. I managed to make a watercolour on location, and get some blurred video footage. I did a more detailed b/w study based on this footage years later but I didn`t find the time to create a painting until now.


Saker falcon watercolour

It was two years ago when I did a study of this Saker falcon on toned paper. I always had in mind to do a coloured version of this but didn`t find the time until now..Here is the initial drawing , and the latest watercolour.
