Finished - Barn Owl watercolor

Presenting Barn Owl. I finished this one up this morning. Hope you like it! Stay tuned for the start of a new large painting of an osprey that I've been excited about doing for some time. It should be an ambitious project for me...

This is beautiful Kelly !! I have a special affection for barn owls, they have the coolest faces and their back feathers are amazing. I could just sit and stare at one all day.

Kelly, I'm so glad to have found your blog. Your work is amazing and very inspiring. I love the feel of this piece, the lighting, the color, very nice and soft.

Great handling of the medium Kelly! I particularly like that reflective glow you achieved on the breast of the owl.
