Here's the update on the Barn Owl and Flying Squirrel painting.
I've spent a good portion of the day putting in tiny little hairs on the squirrel.
I hope to have this second layer completed so that it may dry enough to begin all over again next Tuesday.
In order for the hair to look real and thick, there will be many layers alternating color in this coat.
For those who have not seen one in person, their hair is much like a Chinchilla in feel and looks.
The last few nights, I have been able to hear them chirping in the woods behind the house. They bred in Feb. and I'm sure the kids are out with Mom learning all the skills they will need to survive out there.
Fortunately, I have not heard the owls as of late. The tree thinning pretty much frightened them off.
(Good for the squirrels, sad for me as I enjoy both)
Once he is looking real enough then back to the Barn Owl feathers....... Now that's a job!!!!!! :- )
