The sheer majesty of the White Bellied Sea Eagle is what inspired me to paint this magnificent bird. I used many different photographs provided by wildlife photographer Nathan Piesse as references and inspiration to create this painting .
When creating this artwork I wanted to capture the power and beauty of this majestic bird concentrating on catching his prey.
This is the second version of this White-bellied Sea Eagle painting. Sadly the first version was destroyed by a young footpath cyclist who appeared from nowhere when loading the painting into the car to be transported to the framer. I am hoping tenacity has paid off and the second version is better than the first
Few Australian birds of prey are as spectacular as the White-bellied Sea-Eagle. Although it is similar in shape to the well-known Wedge-tailed Eagle, and almost as large, the sea-eagle is readily distinguished by its contrasting crisp-white and ashy-grey plumage, which adds to its striking appearance as it soars effortlessly on broad wings. Despite its name, the sea-eagle is not confined to coastal areas, and the species is regularly recorded at terrestrial wetlands far from the sea, especially along larger inland rivers and at freshwater swamps and lakes.
