Often, I run into a sticking spot on a painting and that has happened with our friend, Diamond, so I have set him aside for today and started a new one.
This is a Harpy eagle, or Harpia and the largest eagle rivaled only by the Phillipine eagle, though in researching I found the bird nerds have a lot of animated disagreement about the this subject.
At any rate they are massive and powerful, so I really wanted to have the privilege of painting one, so I begin........where the story goes from here is not yet revealed. And of course due to my love affair with chiaroscuro, I will have another painting that is difficult to photograph.
