Verreaux's Eagle Study
Pastel. 9" x 12". 2017.
Verraux's Eagles are native to Southern Africa and eat almost exclusively rock hyraxes, a medium sized badger-like mammal. This drawing came from a demonstration I did for a group of high school students during a pastel class I taught. This drawing originally took about 15 minutes to get the point across, but later I brought it home and spent some more time touching it up, bringing it to about 45 minutes of work.
