Lanner Falcon in acrylics

Really pleased with how this one turned out. I did  quite a few glazes to get the depth to the feathers.  I used the transparent red oxide to get the reddish brown colour to the feathers.  I prefer it over burnt sienna as I find that burnt sienna goes a bit pinkish when white is added. 

Lanner Falcons breed in Africa, South East Europe and into Asia. They measure around 43 - 50 cm in length. 

Lanner Falcon measure 6 x 6 inches and is painted on Ampersand Gessobord Panel.

Many thanks to  Scotch Macaskill for the reference photo.
