Sketch for "Great Egret in Surf" oil on paper

Before I undertake a painting I do thumbnails in which I play around with Ideas, composition etc. They are so useful. I thought I would post a few from time to time.

A couple of Eagles!!!! 30 x 30'' oil

Here are 2 of my  triptic, Now I just have to paint the large guy in the middle carrying the goose head! They are painted on cradles. The large one will be 30 x 60 '' which means I will be making a large cradled board. Last time I tried this I had already finished the painting and got glue all over the poor painting!! what a dummy!!!

Sketches for my Triptic. oil on cartridge paper….

I spent almost a week watching a pair of eagles eating a goose on the Ice in front of my house. I thought it would be fun to do a series of 3 paintings showing the eagle with the goose. I have painted 2 of the 3 paintings.

YellowBilled Stork 36 x 24 oil

Oops I forgot to post this one. I saw this in a rookery in the Okovango.
