Kestrel Sketches/Studies by Nambroth Kestrel Sketches/Studies by Nambroth
Yesterday I was lucky enough to participate in a Plein Air event at a local farm. I went with an open mind, figuring I’d paint some veggie plants or the scenery, and instead found that a local falconer/rehabber had some of his birds with him! I quickly set up and did some fast studies/sketches of one of his kestrels in watercolor. Done completely from life.

Watercolor, approximately 11" x 7"

Kestrels have and always will have a big spot in my heart. Such a big spirit in such a little body. They are an absolute pleasure to work with! And this is a wonderful representation :)
