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.

Old masters Gallery Munich-Copying works of old masters

For most of the people who know my work, I`m a wildlife artist.What they don`t know is that I used to  draw in the past and still do many human portraits from life. In this case , I decided to "enrich" my knowledge, by copying portraits of Old masters in the "Alte Pinakothek" in Munich. A unique experience!
