The more I see it, the more I love it. And the pic isn't that good. I'll try to have a better shot one of these day.
"Baltimore" came from the fact that the initial sketch was done at the last ASAA forum held in Baltimore MA. Since the sketch won an award it was inspirating for me to put that in painting as shown in this "old" discussion with Wade : http://www.ehangar.com/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=1452&start=30
Thanks to all for the kind words, I appreciate that this one has good feedback.
I'm ok with the errors on the type, There's some mistake comparing to the original bird. But really, the idea was to change this quick sketch to a quick painting. A kind of oil study, nothing more.
