Peregrine falcon field study

Recently I’ve been focused on making a piece for the Berks Art Alliance’s show celebrating the 80th Anniversary of Hawk Mountain Sanctuary. In case you don’t know, it’s a great place to hike and more specifically watch the migrations of birds of prey. They are focused on raptor conservation, education, and observation.
Edit: Additional info about Hawk Mountain can be found at their website, Hawk Mountain Sanctuary
So, I choose to do a field study of a peregrine falcon. One of my favorite birds, the peregrine is also one of the most recognized endangered raptors in the world. I worked with an old timey custom mixed brown ink and then added watercolor. I’ve included a pic of it in the studio and then framed in the show. Hope you enjoy it!
