Great Gray Owl Finished

I have just finished the Great Gray Owl, which I titled "Great Gray Hunter". (spoof off of "Great White Hunter".) It was a lot of long tedious hours to get all those feathers and grass blades but also a lot of fun to do my first owl. As usual I am both relieved to have it done and also going to miss working on it!

Great Gray Owl WIP 2

Here is an update on the owl. Mapping in all those feathers took ages but now back to the fun part of painting in details. This photo is showing it more red than it actually is.

Great Gray Owl 1

I have been working on this Great Gray Owl. It is acrylic, 18 x 24 on Gessobord. Still a lot of work to do on the face, and once the owl is done there will be a lot more grass all around him. I have been wanting to paint an owl for a long time, and finally have the chance. Great Grays have such interesting dinner plate faces!
