Here's an updated detail of my owl painting in progress. Although this piece is #3 on my current list of priorities, I had the time to play around with it yesterday while I was waiting for priorities #1 and #2 to dry.
This painting has a lot of new and unfamiliar features for me, so I've been letting it percolate for a long time while I work on other things. I'm glad I had that little window of time to sit down and give it some focused attention yesterday. I feel like I made some good breakthroughs. Ultimately, this will be part of a pair that includes a view looking down through the trees.
