New painting – the Barn Owl series

After the Great Blue Heron painting, I decided to continue on with some art nouveau inspired pieces.  I’ve really enjoyed all the Barn Owls that I’ve been painting and decided to continue along this path and make a matching set of panels.

I’ve started adding colour to the blue panel, the second panel will be in yellows and golds.    I was having reservations about the blue colour and was thinking of replacing it with purple, but at standing back and taking a break, the blue is going to work well.  Here is the progress so far.
