Kestrels.

This is a new painting, finished just today. Rivington Pike is a local walk favourite up on Winter Hill near Bolton where I live. There are all sorts of birds around so I chose kestrels as the subject.

Indeed, indeed, Repentance oft before, I swore---but was I sober when I swore?
And then and then came Spring, and Rose-in-hand, My thread-bare Penitence apieces tore.

I love kestrels! Have many photos of them. Guess I should paint one.

Do you use photo references?

Grateful to Jesus for everything!

Hi Susan. Indeed, I often use photo references when I need specific details like birds and animals. You should definitely paint things you like and I hope you do paint a kestrel. I love watching birds and our home town hall is a bit unique because we have a family of Peregrine Falcons who nest on top of the building

I have yet to see falcons in the wild. One day maybe. You should get some pics of them!

Hope you can see this link of one of them flying across our town hall clock, Susan.

No, I'm a very amateur hand with a camera Susan. It was from a local newspaper.
