Stared working on the halter. Used white, indigo, and dark brown for the metal parts. Used indigo, sienna, dark brown, and cream for the leather parts. Pay attention to values (always).
Added warmth (magenta and canary yellow). Added depth and darks (true blue, indigo). Added white to the sky.
Started with the eye using sienna, indigo, dark brown, cream, white, and a little true blue. This eye is only partly finished. It needs more refining.
This is a different hawk using similar colors on a green board. It is further along than the one on off white.
