Little Owl in Acrylic

I wanted to try a small version of the Little Owl before attempting one with a full background.
This is a captive bird that I photographed at a game fair. I can see the plumage much better in this photograph than my wild owl one so decided it would be good to practice the feather structure.
It is 8 x 10 inches, acrylic on MDF.

Gayle,

This is going to be spectacular! I can tell already.

Can't wait to see it as you progress,

Thanks for posting this. I love to see works in progress. I'd love to hear how you approach your painting. What are your steps? What are you focusing on? Hearing how other people work always inspires me to revisit my own process.
I'll be anxious to see your progress on the owl.
