Happy New Year Wishes & Athena Minerva with Owl Work in Progress WIP...



I hope the new year brings you much joy!  Happy new year wishes from me to you...




I'm working on my Athena big eye Greek goddess (also known to the Romans as Minerva) with owl painting.  I think I need around a week more of solid work on her to finish.  Sometimes I work on more than one painting at a time and I have a couple more in the works, but my main focus is on this one right now as I'd like to submit her for a show.


I've done some glazing using Golden Glazing Liquid (Gloss), I tested a couple more than the ones I shared last week and I decided that one was the one that best fit my purpose.  However, Golden Glazing Liquid (Satin) came in a close second.  It was an interesting experience using the glazing medium, there's a bit of glare on her face in the photograph from the glaze, I hope to get a better picture next time.  At this point I'm ready to move forward to her features...
