A Sneak Peek at Work in Progress & a Bonus Glimpse into my Funny Little Mind

I am really feeling this piece that I’m working on at the moment. I’m intrigued that the protagonist isn’t human (this wasn’t pre-meditated, it just happened).

Also, I had to re-paint the eye section on the big owl after completely ballsing it up the first time around. The little guys are my obligatory autumnal colours paintings of the season (although I’m in danger of it no longer being autumn by the time I finish them). Continue reading
