Gorgeous painting and very well done indeed. Barn owls are such beautiful birds, but have such enormously complicated and delicate markings - it's hard getting those right without cramping a piece with details. I think you managed to get them down really well :love:

Tell me about it!!! I think I painted over and redid the markings at least twice. They kept coming out too harsh, and I still think they could have been toned down further, now that I look at this again. It was difficult with the piece being relatively small, too. I'm glad you think I managed well though! Thank you very much :)

Oh yeah, small pieces make things like that much more difficult. Hmm, I don't think they should have been toned down further still per se, actually. There are enough Barn owls which are rather dark and have those gorgeous clear markings as you've painted them :)

You're right, their markings do vary quite a lot! :)
