Flight of the Kestrel - American Kestrel  by Michael Dumas
  Flight of the Kestrel  (2012)
Subject: American Kestrel
Dimensions (inches): 8 x 12
Medium: Oil on Russian Birch
Description: I painted Flight of the Kestrel working directly from specimens, a practice that prompts a very intimate response to both the visual and tactile qualities of the subject. Having observed kestrels in flight many times, I had a working memory-impression that directed the angle and posture seen in the final image. This combining of in-hand visual reference and the insights gleaned from direct field experience provided an extremely rich environment in which to create something both informative and imaginative.
