MONTAGU´S HARRIER , from the study to the magazine cover

It was four years ago, when I first visited the Extremadura region in Spain, well known for its rich bird fauna and biodiversity. I did a lot of fieldwork on location but because it`s impossible to capture every scene around I took also a lot of video footage, which gives me the opportunity to study the birds and behaviour at home without any pressure of time.
Attached an image of a male Montagu`s harrier, which has been sketched first based on my own footage, followed by a watercolour study, and the final Gouache composition which made it to the cover of "British Birds" magazine.
