American Kestrel in acrylics

I few weeks ago I painted an aceo of just this birds lovely head but I also wanted to paint the full bird.  I wanted a square format but the 6 x 6 and 8 x 8 panels were a just a bit small.  So in the end I decided to paint it on unstretched canvas which can then be rolled and posted in a mail tube thereby keeping postage costs down. 

I am really pleased with the painting and enjoyed painting on larger scale so I think will be doing a few more larger format paintings. 

American Kestrel measures 30 x 30 cm (11.8 x 11.8 inches) and is painted on loose unstretched  Fredrix Watercolour canvas.

Many thanks to Nigel for the reference photo.
