Fine art illustration of a Sharp-Shinned Hawk (Accipiter striatus.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The Sharp-Shinned Hawk was completed on 4.2.2013. It had been some time since I had drawn a hawk – with some of the other projects I was working on taking up more time than I had thought they would. But some months ago I had found a great reference photo by and thought it would make a fantastic drawing. Looking up the species of hawks native to North America, I find I have only about 8 more to draw to cover all 17 species. The drawing is based on a photo by the talented Canadian wildlife photographer John Williams.
