New Painting Hawk Wings: Work in Progress 1

I've been wanting to do a painting of this hawk ever since I photographed it. So today I picked up a 24"x30" canvas at Nevada Fine Arts. (75% off this month!)
Here is how it looks right now.

Sandhill Crane New Watercolor Work in Progress 2

I like this one pretty much like it is, so I only added a little
 more detail to the Crane and the foreground.

Here it is now:
I think I'll just sign this one and put it in a mat and frame.

Sandhill Crane New Watercolor Work in Progress 1

I started a new watercolor painting today,
 16"x20" smooth watercolor paper.

I made a simple sketch and then painted out the Crane with Maskoid
to paint in the background nice and wet. I added some Kosher Salt to the wet paint in the sky.

I removed the Maskoid and started adding detail to the Crane. I finish up the detail with my watercolor pencils. I want to keep this one fairly loose, we'll see how it goes.
