Today's Study - Red-tailed Hawk in Flight
Earlier this year I painted a study of a raven in flight - looking up at it with clouds behind. I really liked the painting so decided that I'd like to do some cloud studies with the focus on the clouds rather than the birds. I chose a red-tailed hawk as the bird's orange/red tail makes it more dramatic against a sky. But the bird became more important than the clouds, so I guess this is bird study after all.
