The Great Horned One - Acrylic Painting

I have always wanted to paint an owl.  We were fortunate to come across a great horned owl during our trip to Yellowstone National Park this summer. What a beautiful creature !! It looked like a chubby baby with two piggy tails. Here is the photo that I took.

My artist mind has recently started rebelling against realism. So I have been doing lot of painting that involves fewer brush stokes to get the details. This owl painting is done in such style with acrylic on a 8 X 8 Canvas.

Hello Sunshine !!

Sunshine err Sunflowers everywhere.. How can any artist resist painting them ? During my lunch run to SFO Ferry building few weeks ago, farmers market was in full swing and I saw this gorgeous sunflower bunch sitting on a table. Clicked it on my iphone thinking it will make a good reference someday.

After a particularly stressful week at work, I needed some cheering up and chose to paint this today. I didn't want to get bogged down by details. Decided to keep it loose and have fun with it. I am pretty happy with how it turned out. Hope you like it too :)
