Falcon Allegro by TempestErika Falcon Allegro by TempestErika
Peregrin Falcon

Acrylic on canvas.
40 x 40 inches.

The fourth painting in my series of bird paintings. The lighting isnt the best in this photograph (its too blue on the right), but it will have to do untill I am able to do a proper photoshoot. I hope you enjoy. :)

The reference photo I used is courtesy of tleach0608 (thank you!)

They usually are, especially if the artworks as this one has some relief and structure that you won't get the feeling of when reproduced...

This is a fantastic rendition of the bird. I hadn't thought of using a background that echoes the pattern of the birds wings. Brilliant job.

Incredible work. Such wonderful composition, colors, background and bird!

The background reminds me of Klimt, art nouveau, right?

The Background is simply a pattern/design inspired by the work of Margaret Macintosh. Art Nouveau.
