How to Paint an Eagle by Len Hend

Lesson 27 in the http://paintwithlen.com series.

This is not a great painting of an eagle but it is a good lesson for beginners wishing to paint in oil or acrylic. The main thing to keep in mind here is to use a very pale blue tone for the ground and very dark reddish tones for painting the eagle. By using pale blue and deep red we get great contrast and the eagle will look like it is well above the ground.
