This shows a short time-lapse video of the progression of an eagle soaring. This painting was a lot of fun, I felt like someone let me out of my box, so to speak.  Generally, I am working on paintings with intense details and follow a pretty ridged procedure in the process. With this eagle painting, I was free to go wild with the color, texture, and glazes.  I added metallic areas, gilding, and even some rhinestones.
