How to paint arctic peregrine falcon with your fingers.

Prime canvas as usual. Then take blue and white on your chip brush and make little X patterns halfway down to make your sky.

I wanted a smoother sky, so I then blended the entire sky with my hand.

Carve out your falcon shape with your pinky. Start outlining the bird with some Sienna on your finger.

Add a second coat of sienna to start some shadow

Add a little brown to your fingers to darken up the shadow

More brown and the little black

Round out the body by dabbing with your dirty hand

Add some white to the face

I added a little golden yellow to the body and started working the face with a liner brush

Some black, white, and light blue

Sign the the corner with your pinky
