Great horned owls

I've been working on a painting of Great horned owls using gouache paint. These large owls are native to the Americas and have a vast range. I had some nesting in a large pine tree in my backyard one time. The crows seem to chase any owl away these days! 
Here I'm showing just a few steps in my painting process. I may need to make a few changes but first I'm going to let it rest for awhile. Then take another look!

My New Studio

My new work space is all painted and ready for some serious work! I know I can paint there but I'll be experimenting soon to see what types of printmaking will be doable without a sink in my studio. :-/ Otherwise I like  the look of it. Visitors are welcome!
