Fine art illustration of a Gray Hawk (Buteo nitidus.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The Gray Hawk was completed on 2.17.2012. This marks the eighth hawk I’ve drawn. I had some problems with the digital tinting on this image, as I had purchased a new graphics tablet and had some problems getting adjusted to it. After struggling with the image for a few hours I replaced it with my old tablet and finished up the illustration. I had started with an excellent reference photo by Glenn Seplak so I think even with the problems I believe it turned out to be a fairly strong image.
