Since then I’ve been doing some study of the anatomy of the eagle so I’d have a good idea what I was seeing. Working from the photos I took and my sketches of eagle anatomy, this painting is a close-up interpretation of what I saw. Here I’ve tried to capture the regal and powerful qualities of this magnificent bird, the national emblem of the United States and while the Bald Eagle is unique to North America, eagles have been a symbol of power for thousands of years.
