I did this painting as a gift for the kid of a friend who turns 6 this weekend, he's a huge fan of birds of prey. It's great when kids have an appreciation for the natural world and I feel we should stimulate them as much as we can to hang on to that. Thanks to my sister for allowing me to use the photo-ref from her recent trip to Canada and the US.
