More of the sketches drawn up in colour

Nice work, Arthur, really nice.

ARTHUR BISHOP Monday 16th July 2007 09:09

Thankyou Vectis

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.

I like this one, Arthur- a classic mantling pose.

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.:t:

ARTHUR BISHOP Monday 16th July 2007 18:45

Thankyou Andrew I value your comments as I know you are superb at the old raptors

Phil Davis Monday 16th July 2007 19:17

Brilliant work as usual Arthur

Phil.

ARTHUR BISHOP Tuesday 17th July 2007 14:55

Thanks Phill

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

ARTHUR BISHOP Wednesday 18th July 2007 09:04

Hi Woody nice to see you back.

timwootton Thursday 2nd August 2007 23:35

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

Must be on his hols. Look forward to your return, Arthur!

ARTHUR BISHOP Monday 13th August 2007 10:36

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.

timwootton Monday 13th August 2007 12:08

Welcome back Arthur - time to catch your breath now!!!!

Woody Tuesday 14th August 2007 06:39

Nice to see you back Arthur, looking forward to more sketches from you.

Woody

ARTHUR BISHOP Tuesday 14th August 2007 16:10

Thankyou both.

Woody enjoy your stay in my County
