Tasked with creating a pair of Red-Tailed Hawks who hunt the fields and forests surrounding this Kentucky farm. Growing up in Virginia I was familiar with the terrain, and with the Sycamore trees living there, housing the hawks. These trees, which climb through the landscape like thick apparitions- their bone-white skin a beautiful contrast to the crimson, sage, and moss colored leaves of the surrounding forest. I decided to cast these trees in a different light, and pulling colors from the rivers, rain, bluegrass and shadows, rendered them in tones of cobalt, which sets off richly against the keen umber Hawks.
