Work in Progress Original Big Eye Athena Minerva with Owl Painting Art WIP...




Here is a work in progress view of an original big eye Greek goddess Athena (also know to the Romans as Minerva) with her owl painting.  I've started on her neck in this WIP, there's a bit of a glare under her chin as I took the photo when it was still wet.  Her skin tone is an olive, I think I may need some more lights and darks, but I'm going to work on her face for a bit and then decide...
