FireHawk Fundraiser Auction! by Novawuff FireHawk Fundraiser Auction! by Novawuff
Recently I found out a longtime friend of mine :iconkhith: has cancer.. and just to make life more interesting, he's having to pay all the bills without medical insurance. Fun! I wanted to help somehow, so I created this picture specifically to auction off and hopefully raise some money for him. 100% of the proceeds will go directly to my friend.
The ebay auction is here: [link]

This is a 15 x 7 inch painting, with a half inch border of plain paper. It's watercolor with Prismacolor colored pencil on 140lb Cold Press Arches watercolor paper.
Thanks for looking, and please help spread the word to anyone you think might be interested!

I was given permission to use this awesome photo as a reference: [link]

The colours you've used are gorgeous; I love the orange and blue.  The coloured pencil just makes it come alive like blue fire, it's so bold and beautiful.  Also, I'm really sorry about your friend and I hope he feels better soon.

This is a very beautiful piece done for a beautiful reason. I love the combination of blues and oranges--they meld together wonderfully. The flow of the feathers and how it leads to the eyes and the beak is excellent composition, and really lets the eye wander.
Excellent work! I hope your friend is doing better!

I totally love the fact that you used blue to make the shading. well...I mean a really STRONG BLUE. And the most amazing thing is that...it works! It totally stands out. I like to think that there is a deeper meaning to this piece. When I see that amazing blue on the eagle's feather's I think of the sky/faith/hope. Its truly an amazing piece and you should be really proud of it. Oh and best of wishes to your friend :/ I truly truly truly hope everything works out right!

Wow! This is one AMAZING piece of artwork! Such detail and bold colours! It's such a sad thing when you live in a place that is very advanced in science and medicine, a place where there is a treatment for your illness sitting right there, but you can't get it because you don't have the money. You, are one good friend :) All the best wishes to your friend! Bid placed ;)
