Work in Progress Little Owl (Athene noctua) Painting + Face 27 for 29 Faces...



Here is a work in progress view of my little owl (Athene noctua) painting.  I've really just begun at this point.  This is one of the owls I sketched while I was looking for the right one for my Athena (Minerva) painting and while he wasn't quite right for that one, I decided to paint him solo.  I think he is a sibling of Athena's owl...


I'm joining in this week with Paint Party Friday.  To see more participants, please visit:

edit: this is actually face 27

This is face 26 for the 29 faces September challenge.  She is a big eye fairy angel or possibly mermaid sketch.  I think she has an angelic combination of strength and gentleness.  For 29 Faces, the challenge is to share 29 faces during the given month.

Even though you just started on your owl he is adorable. I look forward to see what he looks like when you finish but he is perfect just as he is.
