 Robert Bateman Signature 

Red-Tailed Hawk BRONZE - (Buteo jamaicensis)

"Realistic painting is an attempt at illusion.  Depth, form, space and air must be portrayed on a
two-dimensional surface. The slightest change of angle creates a different apparent flat shape.
In my painting, I want to convey an understanding of all of the planes in depth by manipulating
the shapes and their tones.  No picture such as a drawing or photograph is really adequate for
reference. Therefore, I often use these pictures to create three-dimensional reference or sculpture.
This not only gives me a better understanding but also allows me to see what happens in varying
light conditions. I have been doing these sculptures in clay or Plasticine for many years. After I am
finished using them for a given painting, the sculptures tend to be neglected and damaged or
destroyed. Many people have suggested that I put my sculptures in more permanent form such
as bronze so that others could see and enjoy them. The red-tailed hawk portrait shows the
qualities of that particular species.  He is alert and handsome but with a certain mildness in his
generally fierce bird of prey look.  The flat planes and concave and convex surfaces are
exaggerated to help me express them more clearly in the painting."
