Artist's comments ...

    block-Acacia wood


    ink- Van Son oil base

    reduction print with hand coloring

    unlike most hawks ,the Kestrel (or sparrow hawk,killy hawk,windhover) nests in cavities-such as woodpeckers holes

    or human made boxes. i like to show such a nimble,vigorous little falcon in repose instead of streaking stooping or hovering as it is most often doing while shrieking Killy Killy Killy"

    hand coloring with colored pencil
