I like the way you have painted your peregrine falcon, I've tried painting loosely like this on my bird and animal paintings but I get caught up with to much detail. Your colours are great, 😀

This is a lovely picture, Barry. I really like the anticipation of movement in the bird. it looks as though he is ready to go anytime.

Thank you Linda and Jill I am enthused by your encouraging comments.

A beautiful treatment Barry

What a great pose he has, full of concentration to fly away immediately.

Lovely sense of movement and lovely colours.

Nice work Barry. Precarious and very temporary perch.

The title says it all. Lovely brush strokes Barry.

Nice one Barry!

Thanks to Dennis, Mia, Margaret, Jim, Carole and Seok, for muck encouragement.

Thank you Karen much appreciated still a long way short of your work.

Really like this, great colours and he does look as if he'll be off soon.

Thank you Sandra.

I like the pose and your choice of colours,
