There was an issue with the scan I made of the final Crested Caracara portrait. It has now been fixed.
Finally, a few minutes to draw, but I’m still dealing with a horrible pain in my drawing hand… Anyway, I think the Half Moon Bay Crested Caracara is now done.
The juvenile Crested Caracara is taking shape. It will probably require one more night of work.
The Crested Caracara has my full attention now—and I’m adding color!
A recent celebrity on the San Mateo County coast. After more than a week, I was able to chase this Crested Caracara, a Mexican visitor, and my class admired it with me. Still finding it hard to use color…
This adult Ferruginous Hawk was struck by a model airplane while my class watched last Saturday. It survived, but is in rehab. I hope to add color to this portrait soon.
Thayer’s Gull, just a little closer to completion… Larophiles, please don’t get all nutty about the head streaking, bill and primary pattern—I’m doing my best with the time I have….
