WIP-10 Eagle Owl in oils by NorthumbrianArtist
WIP-10 Eagle Owl in oils
WIP 10 of a commission I'm painting, an Eagle Owl in oil, my first ever attempt at a bird of prey (definitely not my last though!), so far it's taken me off and on over two weeks to get here, I spent a good 5-6 hours on it today listening to the great Neil Diamond playing in the background, somehow his melodies made the day's painting pass that little bit quicker. I am nearly there, almost, just need to blend in the correct tones and hues on the water behind the owl, but I am nearly there! Watch this space....

Medium: oils
Paper: 3D deep stretched canvas
Size: 24" x 18"
Duration: Forever (approx 15-20 hrs over 4-5 days)
