A Photorealism Bird Painting of a Buzzard in autumn.

This large Bird Of Prey belonged to Dr. Nick Fox, world 

renowned author and expert in Falconry and Hawking.


The Buzzard was tethered by leather jesses to a nearby bow

perch but I chose to omit them from the painting to give 

the impression of it being a wild bird.


The picture is painted in oils using Liquin (a product made

by Winsor & Newton) as a fast-drying medium which allows 

for transparent layers to be applied in quick succession. The 

support is medium density fibreboard (MDF) given several 

coats of pure white gesso.


The Buzzard is the most common Bird Of Prey in the UK. 

I think this one was a female though apart from size (the 

male is slightly smaller) there is very little to differentiate 

visually between the two.
