I forgot to mention that it was painted with Topaz Impression II.

This is a gem, Ron. Love the texture-looks a bit like origami paper to me-in fact the whole painting is rather oriental in nature. Beautiful contrasts against the blue sky and strong darks. Also a striking pose- Really fine work!

A great effort Ron. The bird almost looks to be hovering in the air.

Ron, fantastic pose, love sense of floating down with those big talons hanging.   The texture of the BG is like elegant, fine paper, and the knife-like textures on the the feathers add a lot of drama - super presentation!
