Eagle revisited

8" x 10" x 0.5" acrylic on canvas
Here's one of those paintings I previously abandoned.  It's a leftover from my animal series.  To try and "finish" it, I jazzed up the eagle's body with some color, and now I think it made him look like a chicken.  Woops.  I'm pretty happy with his head, though.  Maybe he's dressed up for Mardi Gras.   OR...  it's a chicken with an eagle mask.    
As I look at this photo and yesterday's photo, I'm thinking that pulling out the real camera and better lighting might be worth the effort.  Taking photos with my phone is so easy, though.  I can crop it and send it to Blogger in about 10 seconds.  The trade off is so-so photos.  This eagle one definitely looks better to me "live".
