 Robert Bateman Signature 

 

" This is simply a portrait study of a white gyrfalcon. I sometimes do this
rather than a full painting so that I can pictorially examine the planes
and shapes in the most interesting part of a bird or mammal. I usually
learn things that help me in my larger paintings.

There were three interesting aspects to this work.Falcons have an
expression about the eyes which is dignified and strong,yet with
a certain warmth. It reminds me of the expression of a racehorse.
To me, the interlocking shapes of the bill, mouth and bare skin in front
of theeye are reminiscent of the elegant sculptures of ancient Egypt
or northwestern American Indian totem poles. The third aspect I enjoyed
playing with in this painting was the modulation of shape in the feather
forms and markings. Modulation is the gradual change from one
characteristic to another. The feathers change from small to large
andfrom pointed to rounded. The markings do likewise but not
necessarily corresponding to the feathers in size and shape

In summary, one can find as much of visual interest in part
of abird as in a whole landscape"
