Bird of Prey: Red-tailed Hawk

Watercolor painting of a close-up image of a red-tailed hawk. Reference photo was taken by myself at a falconry show. I painted it in layers starting with a sepia underpainting and building the colors. I ended it with using a little of fine silver and karat gold paint for highlights.
