After a full days work, I am almost finished with the head. I still need to work on one of the ear tufts but am leaving that to last (don't ask me why). I'll still need to darken some areas here and there but will get to that as the painting develops. For now though, I feel that I have captured most of the complex detail of the head although there is quite a bit to still define properly. I have been using mostly earth tones so far and marvel at the coloring and complexity. Next I will attempt the intricate plumage of the breast and wing.
I am an artist living and working near Washington DC in the USA. I was born in the UK but have lived abroad most of my life. I paint mostly landscapes and birds but have many interests so you never know what will turn up. Most of the paintings shown here are for sale so please contact me at jeremypearse (at) gmail.com if interested. Thanks for visiting!
