A Cool-Looking Bird

I think the Kestrel is the best looking bird around. It's relatively easy to paint, for a bird of prey. There's a minimum of streaking (at least on the male) and the basic colors, indigo, black, and burnt siena, are almost, but not quite, right out of the tube.

Here is my latest original watercolor, American Kestrel, by Anne Gilna 2010
