For my first day of daily paintings I found a photo on Instagram shared by @wildlifeplanet and the Photo/Caption by @hikester_ of an eagle.
What an amazing photo capture it is…..Don’t you think? I just fell in love with this photo and wanted to challenge myself to paint it.
Of course mine looks a bit different but that is ok because I was able to capture what I felt from the photo into my painting.
This is a 5″ x 7″ acrylic painting on a Artist Canvas board. The name “Diligent Freedom” just seemed so fitting for this piece and for what my goals are for this challenge.
Hope you like! I am actually pleased with the way it came out because I do have to say when I sketched the bird on the board it almost looked like a bird from whoville, Dr. Seuss…haha…
