I really struggled with this one. Over all in the end I was happy with how it turned out. Not even close to the picture I used for inspiration. It was an owl. Not sure what people see when they look at those piercing eyes. I am finding more and more, I use less of the picture and just do what my painting soul tells me to do.
This painting is not very big, its about 7 inches by 9 inches done on 300 pound with Just slightly textured surface. I love the heavy papers.. no taping no stretching and no curling.
