Regal - 24 x 36", acrylic ... SOLD

I have finally finished the eagle painting that I posted a few in progress photos of before. I was debating on whether to put in a blue sky, or something warmer. I finally decided to go with the pale orange-yellow. Since it was a big expanse of background, I added a bit more interest with some slight outlining, as well as horizontal brushstrokes to balance the vertical eagle. He's a 'Regal' eagle! This painting is a bit more representational that I usually do, even compared to my pet portraits. But it was such a fantastic photo showing some great detail that I just had to paint it that way. It was a fun one to work on.
