Barn owl progress

Well the Barn Owl itself is finally finished and now i can really get stuck into the foreground.I absolutely loved drawing the textures in the fencepost,it's been some time since i drew so much in a picture,thankfully it's like riding a bike and you dont forget!.One of the great thrills with using graphite is attempting to re-create all the wonderful textures in nature and no greater thrill can be had than getting it 'right'.It's been a long day in the studio today and the hours have flown by but ive managed to accomplish quite a lot and hopefully another day or two's work should see this image complete.
