A golden eagle study. I bought some books about color theory yesterday so it's time for some reading and application. Here's a majestic pokey-beaked birb. The books have helped a little bit already. Obviously, I have a long way to go but I think this bird is showing progress compared to my other studies..?
The books are "Fill your Oil Paintings with Light & Color" by Kevin Macpherson (I'm basing this study on lessons from that book)
and "Color and Light" by James Gurney
