The Owl Project….latest sketches

I’ve been working on a series of owl paintings for the last few weeks.  I started with a Barn Owl, which turned out to be so popular, that I decided to roll out an entire series.  Here are the lasted sketches – heading into the studio this afternoon to bring some of them to life. I’m especially excited about the screech owls and burrowing owls.  There is still some work to to on the proportions of the short-eared owl owl, but the basic structure is there.

Enjoy and I’ll be posted the finished products in a few days.
