I finally managed to finish my Sparrow Hawk painting and I must say I am rather pleased the way it turned out. If someone is not familiar with Sparrow Hawk his real name is Ged and he is the hero in Ursula K. Leguin´s Earth sea books (not to mention one of my longest time literal crushes). Ged has the ability to shapeshift himself into a Sparrow Hawk. He is also the archmage of the Earth Sea. A mage, a wizard, a warlock...man is magic! In the books he is described to have "hawk-like" - features so that is what I tried to capture. Watercolors and mixed media.
