I wanted to do a bird piece with a yellow green vs magenta color theory. Most of the colors are very desaturated particularly on the hawk. The background consists of burnt umber, sap green, green gold and primary yellow. Foreground elements are payne's grey, dioxazine purple and primary magenta. There are some opaques but it is mostly transparent paint. Opaques are mostly on the trees in the foreground. There is pure magenta in the hawk's eye.
