Arthur, Good work. Are you planning to work the last sketch up
as a more complete colour work too. Its the one for me of the
set of sketches. Its amazing how accipiters go into this trance like
state at times after a kill.

Seen Gos's do the same thing . I think its a
period of time when the birds adrenalin levels are at there highest
and I think the trance like state they assume is the adrenalin levels
subsiding. keep up the good work .

Good stuff Arthur, like Andrew says I think you've captured the moment really well esp. the second pose.

Thankyou all.
Andrew , I agree with you about not being aware, He seemed to be looking straight through you while trying to subdue it. He was there for about six min's.struggling with the juv. Using his tail like a third leg so he could change his grip, hence the diff. poses. The young must be getting big now . He took it away alive.
1 more drawn up pose.
Haven't decided which pose I like best yet.

Arthur, Loving the finished colour work. Accipiter never kill with there beak.
neather do eagles or buteo's. Falcons are the only ones that seem to deliver
the final solution in the form of a bite to the neck. Accipiters can seem quite
cruel to people sometimes as I have seen them start to eat many a quite
alive bird. They use there vice like grip as the killing mechanism.

Lovely series of working and finished drawings.

Lovely work on the spar Arthur. I like the penultimate one, that mantle is so typical and the triangular shape works well. Also the spar is positioned to look like he is totally dominant.

Have you heard of the UKCPS? I was a founding member but I don't do much cp work now. There's some inspiring colour pencil work on their site which I think is www.ukcps.co.uk

Really nice work, Arthur. Particularly like the soft pastel shades against the tinted paper ~ it gives the work that ''classic'' look.

Not on holiday but after two weeks with three grandchildren ,Woody I could really do with one. Computor went down too just got it back on line.
I have got a lot of catching up to do. I had abreak from sketching while the kids were here, so I must get back inthe swing. With all the Juv. about and the adults moulting ,some of them look a scruffy lot. I think the Rooks and Jackdaws are having a competition to see who can keep flying with the least flight feathers.I think I will be spending the week trying to catch up with what Nick has been up to.
