This was a study of the reflection in the eye of an eagle. I think I captured the serious tone the eagle is displaying as he is overlooking his hunting area. As birds of prey often display a very intense look in their eyes, they serve as the most important aspect to its survival. The edges of this work were too large for my scanner so clipping did occur. I will try and get a photo displaying the whole piece as soon as I can.
Summit Eagle – 5.5″ x 8.5″ Charcoal on paper
This was done for the cover of the Parent Teacher Student Organization PTSO School Directory for Summit Elementary. An eagle perched on a post overlooking Ute Pass. This proved to be interesting using charcoal after a long passing. Decided not to do much of any blending on this subject as I liked the texture of the feathers being more rigid on this one. Think I might do a few more eagles, they are always well received.
