Desert Queen (2016)

The reference bird for this painting is an education bird. Not only did I take photographs of Phoenix, the Harris's Hawk, but I was lucky enough to paint her live at an AFC Art Festival on Grouse Mountain. I wanted to focus on the beautiful tail, but also to put her in her wild habitat outside of Tucson, Arizona.
