A beauty Arthur, and as both Joe Tex and Ed would say, "skinny legs and all."

I really like that Little Owl- musing on why weren't you happy with it? Has a very convincing head n eye shape, really strongly done leggies and all..

I don't know that I've ever seen a sparrow hawk, Arthur, but your beautiful painting makes me wish I had. He is stunning. And the owl is captivating, too. Keep up the great work.

thankyou all
Ed I should have left it as a pen & ink but the head didn't work with a colour wash. The outline came out far too strong & spoiled it for me.

It's amazing how picky we artists can be! But we're still the bosses and only we know what looks the way we want it to. I really like them both myself Arthur but I know the feeling of something not going the way you planned it to.

I got lost on the geese as well Arthur. Not much to see in the way of color yet but I wouldn't be surprised if it ends up a subtle beauty.
