Harris Hawk sketches


Visiting a falconry stand at the Yorkshire Game Fair last summer I sketched a young Harris Hawk who complained loudly the whole time I was there. I also took a couple of photographs in case I decided to develop the sketches later.

While looking through my sketchbook recently I was reminded of this character and thought I would try to capture the feisty attitude and way his eyes seemed to appraise me then dismiss me as irrelevant. The finished painting is now for sale in the Paintings section.
