EAGLE OWL


Finally here is the completed painting. After finishing the rest of the back and wing of the owl, I went over the whole painting tidying up here and there. Some further final details were added then after taking a long look, I decided that I wanted the background to be a little warmer and darker. A wash of raw sienna greyed with raw umber was carefully laid around the owl then when that had dried, I added a few washes trying to create texture within the lower areas of the background. I felt that otherwise, the owl was a little stark against the background. And that was that! Size is 7 1/2" X 11".
