    0F2EA5A6-0913-4294-94EC-FB58730207F5.jpeg Hi everyone and happy 2020. I got real busy over the holidays with pencil drawings and festivities, but now get to paint just for fun. This is something my husband has been wanting, an Eagle with our flag. Here on the first step I’ve just covered up most of the white and I’m getting the blue parts in. I’m using Createx Illustration colors on Blair synthetic paper.

    The first layer was an opaque mix then I went over with a transparent EE1C09E7-EA16-43D2-9382-47E1E839A589.jpeg

    I got side tracked from this for a while, but got in a little more. Here I’ve added a little depth to the stars and white areas of the flag

    3E6D7279-A09D-4A8F-A761-C98523AAD596.jpeg I’ve finished the flag so moving onto the eagle now. I’ve just done a base and scratched out some lighter spots on the beak and eye.

    I went in with yellow and sepia mix for the eye, yellow for the beak that I toned down A08F28E9-4F8E-4E19-8557-9480285ADEC5.jpeg a little. Scratched in the white spots. Working on the white feathers now using Payne’s gray with a few drops or orange to make it less blue. Scratching out the feather detail.

    I used sepia for the feathers and then added a little black to the sepia for the darker parts. Still a WIP, but getting close. B2FA6F41-E6AD-4F3B-B9A1-EA158BC87FB5.jpeg
