Owl - WIP

I knew when I took the picture of this cedar tree that I would one day put an owl in it. Donna Brown, photographer and wildlife enthusiast, took a great shot of a horned owl at a raptor center and allowed me to use it for reference.  I played with some thumbnail sketches last night, then decided it would look good in a 16x20 painting, so I toned the canvas to be ready to go this morning. This is as far as I got today.  Dabbled a bit on another larger painting that needed some corrective surgery.... you know, one of those that's been facing the wall for several weeks.  We all have them!
