Bald eagle fine art print
This bald eagle fine art print has been a drawing I have been greatly anticipating. I love to watch bald eagles because they are incredible birds. There is a pair of bald eagles that used to nest down my road, as such I developed a fascination for these birds. Because of this, I knew I would have to draw one despite being unnerved about their complexity! This is the second bald eagle I have attempted. The first was never finished, unfortunately. For this reason, I wanted to make absolutely sure this drawing would be finished.
Finally, I love this bald eagle fine art print, and I have to be honest its one of my best works. I hope you love it too.
