Berlin Tierpark-Raptor studies

I've spend last weekend in Berlin and had the chance to visit after many years the East Berlin zoo
with it's rich mammal and bird collection.
The Raptors are always worth a visit and I couldn't resist to make a couple of studies...

Magnificent, as always. The head of the Golden Eagle is just perfection. It would be fun to see you work some time - it looks as you might be pretty quick?

I just saw that it's an Imperial Eagle! They're not too far apart, though. Still perfection :-)

Thylacine painting

Extinct animals and birds are still among my favorites, and the Tasmanian tiger is surely one of them. I did start one more painting depicting the animal and though I was pleased with the background the tiger seemed to be very big for the size, with wrong proportions and facial expression. I decided to remove the tiger and repainted it over the background but much smaller. Surely not my best attempt but I know that I`ll be able to create a much better painting one day.
