Levant sparrowhawk studies-video based

The levant sparrowhawk a migrant raptor to south eastern Europe, one of the most handsome to me.
 Though it is quite common, there is very little known about his distribution and biology.
Thanks to a friend of mine wo was able to get some video of this bird,(of poor quality but containg enough visual informations )I managed to create a series of  studies of both sexes.
It seems that except of bird guide illustrations, there are no other painted images of this species to be found.
I did  also several small paintings based on these studies during the last years, and hope to make more in the future.
Attached , b/w studies based on video footage, and more images will follow soon..

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...
