Ceremony by windfalcon Ceremony by windfalcon
Whispers of smoke rise, telling secrets only to those who will listen.

A long-forgotten painting, brought to the drawing stage and then stashed away for a later date. I finally found it and finished it, using some new colors and techniques.

Watercolor on illustration board, 8 X 10 inches

I love this one, the colors are excellent. The rich orange/burgundy next to that teal is so lovely.

your bird work is amazing...the wings look so powerful, yet elegant and fragile at the same time. someday, someday i hope to achieve half of this quality.

The framing, the lighting, the coloring, the poses...everything is spot on to create a certain atmosphere. I love the bird head emerging from the smoke and the iridescence of the one raptor's feathers as compared to the warm earthiness of the other's. Lovely! :+fav:

Ohh your color choices are definitely bolder in this, but to very good effect! I love the contrast between the warm colored bird and the more ethereal pale bird. It seems to me as if the visiting bird is there to be counseled by the priest from this other image of yours ^_^ [link]
