Since I cannot travel to see wild gyrfalcons, sketching them from 'life' on the video was the next best thing for now at least. I was really taken by one of the fledglings that twisted her head every which way to follow some feather down floating around in the breeze in front of her.
My sketch-work has never been very good, but a few folks expressed interest in seeing it so here it is!
Immature Gyrfalcon Studies, approx. 11" x 8" pencil (graphite) and watercolor.
