I like the bird and the detail on the tree. Well done.

I love the feel of your work. There is a balance to it, and a calmness. Even though this hawk is watching and could take off, there is still a stillness of it I like very much.

Hi Lorettaje, I really love this. With the subtle background and the fine details of the watchful Hawk you have made such an intriguing and appealing painting. I love that you have kept it uncluttered and included just enough of the tree to balance the image and tell a story. The Hawk is magnificent....I think I saw him blink!! You should feel very proud of your work, well done. I look forward to seeing more of your beautiful work. Kind regards, Paula.

Hi: I liked how you did the wet on wet background. Like how you placed the branches as well.
