Just finished this Gouache portrait of a Lanner falcon, as a demonstration for a friend. This has been a solely brush painting without initial pencil drawing and is based on video footage I took last year. I took some video while I was painting and in case you want to see the whole video check out at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uZCjqQisAt8&t=5355s
..The Thylacine is a legendary species which lived in Australia and Tasmania and seems that is already extinct, since there is no credible evidence that the animal still exist for decades now. Attached, my efforts to depict the animal, starting with the initial pencil drawing , and showing the process step by step to the finished pen drawing. Eventually , I noticed several mistakes on his anatomy, decided to revise the image, started a couple of watercolours, and managed to complete at least one . Forgot to mention that videos taken in Hobart zoo( Tasmania) in the 30`s of last century have been a great help while creating my image.
