20-03-20 – Barn Owl WIP

Today I made some really good progress on this piece, in that I finished mapping out the entire bird. It is still rather flat in places, notably around the body but that is something that I will address during the next stage once I have carefully blended this out with Zest It.

One thing I’m also keen to emphasise is the light direction: the underside of the owl is very much darker than the upper side, but due to the softness of the feathers, the light is illuminating the body giving it a glow in the late afternoon sunlight. A nice warming light which is ideal in these gloomy times perhaps.
