Short-eared Owl (initial work_

I decided to tackle another Owl… This preliminary work on a Short-eared Owl portrait is based on my photograph for a change. As with the Arctic Loon, I’m daunted by the complexity of the pattern on this bird. Hopefully, I’ll find a way to simplify the process—and the finished product. At this early stage I’ve defined a few major feather groups and the darkest areas of shadow.
