Saw-Whet by screwbald Saw-Whet by screwbald
Back from an unexpected sojourn, bearing good tidings and birds. Here's one of the things I painted while I was away, in-between finishing up my piece for the 2012 Werewolf Calender (here's the sketch in case you missed it--I'll post the final painting sometime later this year!)

8x11 Acrylic on wood

I never heard of Saw-Whets before I went to BC two years ago. I was astonished that such cool owls exist! Great painting.

Aw, this is so cute! It reminds me of a little saw-whet I used to work with named Cuare. She'd been attacked by a cat and couldn't fly anymore, poor thing. She may have been tiny, but she had an attitude the size of redwood!

I like how it is realistic, yet exaggerated the eyes are. Again, loving the duller colors but using light to give contrast and mood! Excellent job (:

Oh my goodness, he looks so incredibly angry! Anyway, I really like the variances in feather texture, from the broad strokes on his wings and chest to the short, quick ones on his face. I also think the eye shine really brings him to life. Well done!
