Preening Sarus Crane – Acrylic on Paper

Sarus Crane Preening – Time Lapse Video from Raymond Cassel on Vimeo.

The Sarus Crane is the tallest of the flying birds. Found in India, Southeast Asia, and even Australia. This particular bird I photographed at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo in Colorado Springs. I made this painting using the photograph as a guide. This is the first time I recorded a timelapse of my traditional artwork. I will definitely do more. If you like this painting it can be purchased here.
