Well this is AEDM #6 ... I didn't post yesterday, but I did paint! I actually went to an art event and saw the art of 140+ artists who own their studios in Minneapolis. It was a GREAT time and I bought a fun Robot piece that will be hanging in my home studio for inspiration :)
Here is another owl that I am working on based on the techniques I've learned (so far) while taking the e-course "How to Paint an Owl".
This was inspired by my dad, John (step-dad), who died unexpected 3 years ago. He was a pilot (for fun) and we owned a Cessna 182 while I was growing up. Whenever I hear or see single engine air planes I know/feel that it's John, saying hi and letting me know he is watching over me. :)
I was ready to toss in the towel at one point, but I just got out the white paint, and started over ... its going much smoother now. I think its going to change a lot in the next couple of weeks. All the detail will really help to add the dimension and relationship between the parts of the plane to make them not so flat and confusing. Stay tuned ...3 owls will be transforming in the coming weeks. I'm really excited!
