This is the mom, I didn't have my big camera with me so the pictures are not the best but you should still be able to see those pointy ears.
The Dad always seems to be around so we kept looking until we found him too. Great Horned Owls are the most amazing birds.
This is one of those pages I really could not write over. I need to order some new white gel pens. I like the Uni-ball Signo broad pens the best. It looks like an order to jetpens.com is coming up. Its a dangerous place, I always spend too much there just so I can get free shipping.
I used some different colors in her face and it was an interesting exercise. I often use burnt sienna but this time I used red oxide which is more orange in color. She seems pretty stern to me. Its interesting to watch other artists faces over time. Some paint the same face over and and over again while other are very different but still see to have the same style. I don't think I have ever painted the same look twice although people often tell me my faces look like me. Sometimes I see it and other times I don't. I think the first face I showed on this post looks very young while the second looks older and more mature. The odd thing is I don't know how or why that happened. I just go with the flow and whatever happens is what I end up with. Art truly is a journey.
