Common Goldeneye- Oil painting

Started this one 8"x 10" oil...and like
the Goose painting below, I'll be making a
2-1/2 minute short video on its making start to
finish. I'll post that here as this one gets finished.

I'm painting on MFD board...sealed with polycrylic,
gesso and pumice...

A bit more on the eagle....

Not sure I'll go much farther than this on the detailing of
the eagle. Going for pose, character, sense of softness
on feathering...but wanting the eagle to feel about the
distance from the viewer I want, and greater detail would
certainly not be the case.

I'll eye this one up a few days and see what I think, if its
about done....

Clicking on image brings up a nicer larger view to take in!

thus far. More to do...but gettn' there.

Chilkat Fishing Buddies 32"x 36" oil

Taking an old scene I painted from my time two
summers ago in Alaska, and finally starting to add
a gliding eagle.

The Chilkat Mountains (off Juneau) are absolutely
stunning...and we saw eagles abound. In some
places, perhaps as many as 1500 eagles...and yes,
the dog/chum salmon were running...

I just blocked in the basic shape, values and color
and will begin knit pickin' next week...
