Buzzing - now for sale by rieke-b Buzzing - now for sale by rieke-b
:star: Original painting now for sale on Etsy: [link] :star:

Watercolours with some opaque white, 30x21cm. Varnished with acrylic matt spray film, signed and dated. Safe packaging as registered letter, unframed (sending a painting in a frame with glass would be risky and cause high shipping costs).

Inspired by some photos of buzzards arguing about a good seat. The two birds are only threatening each other, though, and won't have a serious fight.

The buzzard (Buteo buteo) is probably the most numerous bird of prey in the world. It's a species with a big colour variety, from almost white to dark brown. It's quite adaptable and can often be seen gliding over arable land. It mainly feeds on mice.

I can watch buzzards rather often near the place I live, but not as often as I’d like to see them.

:star: Originalgemälde jetzt bei Etsy erhältlich: [link] :star:

Aquarell mit etwas Deckweiß, 30x21cm. Mit Acryl-Sprühfilm fixiert, signiert und datiert. Sicherer Versand als Einschreiben, nicht gerahmt (ein Bild in einem Rahmen mit Glas zu verschicken wäre riskant und würde hohe Portokosten bedeuten).

Inspiriert von mehreren Fotos von Bussarden, sie sich um einen guten Sitzplatz streiten. Die beiden Vögel drohen sich allerdings nur, es kommt nicht zu einer ernsten Auseinandersetzung.

Der Mäusebussard (Buteo buteo) ist wahrscheinlich der häufigste Greifvogel der Welt. Die Färbung ist sehr variabel, von fast weiß bis schwarzbraun. Sie sind recht anpassungsfähig und deshalb häufig über Kulturflächen segelnd zu sehen. Sie ernähren sich hauptsächlich von Mäusen.

Ich kann recht häufig Bussarde in der Nähe meines Wohnorts beobachten, aber längst nicht so oft wie ich sie gerne sehen würde.

:o WOW! I didn't know buzzards looked like hawks (shows you how much I know! We just have vultures and hawks around here). They're so animated! It puts me in the scene with flapping wings and screeches of protest. Your colors are excellent! The subtle blue in the white parts and feather detail (and dynamic salt spots, nice touch!) Worth the time and effort! :love:

Actually, I'm confused now because in another comment I was told that they were called hawks in America. :-O Or did I get something wrong?
Oh yes, you have turkey vultures in NC, don't you? I want to paint one of those, too!! :)

Ooooh, thank you sooo much for your kind words! :hug: I really had some trouble getting motivated for this one, but now I'm satisfied with it.
I didn't use salt, though. :)

:o A quick internet search revealed that Buzzards ARE Hawks! They're the same thing. Huh, didn't know that!

:meow: Yep! We have more black vultures than turkey ones, but we still have some. They're cool!

I'm glad you found your motivation again! It turned out amazing! But if you didn't use salt then how did you get the random white spots in it?

rieke-b Featured By Owner May 30, 2012  Professional Traditional Artist
Oh, I see! :D I think the thing with buzzards and hawks is a little confusing, too.
Yes, black vultures are great! :heart: They're called Rabengeier in German, "raven vulture". :D

Thanks again. :bow: I just painted a pattern of water on the paper and left some dry areas, then I put the paints on without planning too much and a few nice effects happened automatically. :) Some of the white spots are splashed opaque white, too.
