"Radiant" 6x8 acrylic
I finally got around to finishing this study I started a week or so ago. Previously, I posted an image of the quick underpainting for this piece and talked about how that process helps move the finished painting in the desired direction. There are a lot of pinks, purples, and blues in the shadows of the owl's "white" plumage. I learned a lot putting paint on this small piece, but that's the point... right?
