Ural Owl digesting

I paint a lot of owls.  I love the owls for their brownish colors, and the subtle patterns of their plumage.  Here is a new Ural Owl – (Strix uralensis) sitting on a branch and impassively digesting. After sketching the owl I started to paint the eyes and head. Continued with the feathers. The last thing was branches of the tree and the leaf.

Painting dimension: 23×30,5 cm / 9″x12″
Paper: Fabriano Watercolour, Grana Fina – Cold Pressed
Paint: Acuarela Colibri – Combinatul Fondului Plastic
