The owl is painted with chalk and pencil, with some use of the palette knife.

Very artistic Tony and I love the way the owl pops right out of the canvas:)

Evil Robot, many thanks.

justjean and GekkouJin, thanks to you both. I'm glad you like the background...I had one or two in mind but decided on this as it was less distracting.

Gaia, thank you.

Geoff, many thanks...took me about 14 hours overall to do this. I enlarged the painting to 400% so that I could get some detail on the owl.

JMMK, Katie, Caesar, and kenmo, many thanks guys (& gals).

Gary, there is at least a bottle of red wine in this one! Many thanks.

Hi Tony,
I have been on to have a look at your pictures. They are really great.
I will show them to Mom and Dad next time they come round.
It was lovely to see you and your Dad earlier!
Love Lou x
