Hooded Vulture


Bird Painting

Original Contemporary Wildlife Portrait Painting by Diane Griffiths.

Acrylic and enamel on 1.5″ box canvas with painted sides, 61x50cm/24×20″ (2017).

This hooded vulture is inspired by a photo I took of a vulture at Eagle Heights, near Dartford in Kent. An ugly and beautiful bird at the same time; with a long then bill, bare face; all in all rather scruffy-looking but it’s a bird which is full of character.
