2013, fineliner pen and acrylic paint
'Betty' is the name of one of the Ruppell's Griffon Vultures who live at The Falconry Centre in the west Midlands. Drawing a Vulture is a challenge, there are so many different textures to master; from the sharpe beak to the wrinkly skin on the neck and the fluffy down on the head and body. This was the first A2 sized piece of work completed using thefineliner and acrylic paint technique. This offered the opportunity to master the detail and to explore mark making to it's full potential in this medium.
