George – Harris Hawk

George Harris Hawk

My latest commission now safely delivered – this is another “George” the harris hawk in his juvenile plumage. Many birds of prey will have different plumage in their first years, and they also have slightly longer flight feathers to help them when learning to fly.

This one was done on a slightly off-white/creamy paper to compliment the tones in the feathers.
