Red-tail 1 17 2016 Detailing Continues (For those of you that are not wise in the ways of Facebook, click on the picture.)

Hi Folks,

It’s been a long week, but one in which I didn’t get much done. If you look closely at the first picture you will see how the hawk’s left leg looked just before I published last week.

I noticed that as I was publishing the Newsletter last week that there was something amiss about the way that the hawk’s left leg was structured. So I amputated it, restructured it to bend correctly, and re-attached it. In the process I screwed-up much of the detailing that I had just published in last week’s Newsletter

So the picture above is how it looks today, and the picture below is how I am beginning to detail the feet. It amazes me that as I publish these pictures I notice things that although I’ve been working on this all week, I didn’t notice while I was working (Too Close To The Bird To See The Toes.)

The hawk’s left toe on it’s right foot is obviously too long. Watch the space to see a shortening next week.

Incidentally, I want to thank all of you that came into visit the Stonewall Gallery in Loudonville, Ohio during the “2016 Winterfest” celebration last weekend. I hope that you enjoyed the Art.
