Fine art illustration of an American Kestrel (Falco sparverius.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The American Kestrel was completed on 11/23/2009. I was recently in Arizona and saw a kestrel in a tree, then when hiking back in the Bay Area we saw another one. The sightings reminded me I had yet to draw one of these handsome birds of prey. The drawing was more challenging then I had anticipated but I’m happy with the results. The drawing is based on a photo by Ron Wolf.
