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! 12" x 15"
