Barn owl

I met a woman at the Farmers Market Think Spring show who was interested in owls. It was coincidental that I have recently been thinking about doing an owl. So, this is what I came up with.  I strayed from my normal muted tones with his eyes. At first I wasn’t sure I liked the bright yellow, but I think it works.

I tried my hand at frame painting with this one. I used a red undercoat and then sort of smeared the black paint over the top. After it dried I used some tinted BriWax. I enjoyed both processes.


So, what are you working on these days?
