Stormy Eagle

painting of a bald eagle in a stormy sky
An American Bald Eagle in a stormy sky. Looking mad as hell. Interpret that however you will.

Worked almost entirely with a palette knife. Attempts to paint the picture I had in my head with a brush all failed. The picture was not a tidy picture, it was wild and ragged and brilliantly coloured. I found it impossible to create with a brush because a brush was simply too tidy.

This was good fun: I am always thrilled to find a reason to break out the Cadmium Orange. Just love that colour.

Have a lovely weekend everyone.
