Kelly - Painting 8

(watercolor, 12x16)

This Barn Owl's name is Storm. She's a rescued owl for RAPTOR, Inc. One day last fall, Matty and I went to a photo shoot of the owls. I based this painting on one of the photos Matty took. It made him happy that I preferred his photo over all of mine! Storm is a beautiful bird. She is a working educational bird with RAPTOR because her wing was damaged and she can no longer fly.

Beautiful job on those luscious brown feathers, and feet ... and that deep greenish background is a lovely color contrast.

Ithink Storm just became my favorite of your bird paintings. His 'jiz' is so right on ... and getting all those little spots in his feathers has always been a challenge for me. You did it so well.

Wow, I just saw the sketch you did of Storm. Both are so well done. Striking bird and painting.

...thanks, Lorrie!

thanks, Elva! I fell in love with Storm. She had such incredible postures and movement.

Liz...thank you!
