Beauty the Barn Owl by VixSky Beauty the Barn Owl by VixSky
So here is my most recent painting, it is of a Barn Owl.. I havn't done a proper painting since summer last year, and this is a whole year after Elephants..

I'm quite pleased with how it came out, it is on canvas, quite large (dont ask for measurments) and done in acrilics..

Strangley, the white on the front was the hardest of all, just getting the shading and the feathers right.. I enjoyed doing the face, and the wing was a little but tideous..

But anyways, I'm quite pleased and I'm finally getting into painting again :D :D

It certainly looks very good so well done. Do you do these pics from reference images or sometimes out of your head? My animal pics that have a lot of detail in them are from reference but other stuff I do out of my imagination cus I wonna test myself cus I wonna do a degree in Illustration someday.

Aaaanyway how are you getting on at college and in general?

Oh thank you very much :) :) and yess, I usaully have a few reference images to use, as I havn't seen enough of the animal to do it from my head..
Hehe, yeah college is going quite well thanks.. We are starting to chose a specific area to study now for the next year, and I'm thinking about Photography (cause I love taking pictures and using the Dark Room) and Fine Art :D :D And how are you doing, illistration sounds good??
