Thread: Owl swooping down for the kill ...

  1. #1

    Owl swooping down for the kill ...

    Wow; been a while since I last posted a painting here. This was done using oils (with thinners set at 25%) and moderate use of the palette knife. Be advised, though - this painting may be a little squeamish (for lack of a better term) for animal lovers (especially those who find mice or rats to be "adorable" or anything like that). After the last painting I did, I wanted to do a painting with an "epic" feel to it. Hopefully everyone will agree with the final result. Enjoy (see attached)!
