Barn owl update

Blocked in the tree stumps now with an indication of the lighter colours that will prevail when the more detailed top coat of oil is added.The painting has been put aside now for a couple of days to dry.

It looks great. The owl has a well balanced look. I don't think he requires any more detail

thanks andrew,i was always slightly wary about the balance of this piece as i wanted to concentrate on the owl and tree stump alone without anything else to distract.i'm happy with the owl itself but as a confirmed detail addict i'm wanting to extract a little more from the lovely birch bark on the tree
