Owl - WIP#2

I was really hoping to finish this one today, but I'm not quite there yet.  The picture is a little fuzzy, but it is a fairly soft piece anyway.  The lighting is bright moonlight in early evening.  I felt that the owl was too 'exposed' so I put a cedar branch in front and to the right just before I stopped for the day.  It definitely needs some refinement.  I'm not going for photorealism here...  but I do want to achieve depth and time of day.  The only thing that is really precise is the eye, working out in degrees of looseness from there.  My husband suggested the stars and they are just that... suggestions.

I haven't had computer time the last few days but I've looked back several postings and the two pictures of the toys are fascinating. You've done lots with the elderly gentleman...and the I like the softness of the owl picture.

You continue to amaze me...I know Karleen is beaming....

Blessings...Betty @ Country Charm
