Step by Step Owl Painting

I have had a few people ask me about my process lately and they were wondering how I came to have the appearance of such fine detail. I thought I would repost this  series of photos that show step by step how this painting came from start to finish. I always work with a delicate drawing and thin paint. Often the pencil lines still show through and add to the end result. Hope you enjoy it.

Beautiful Bee hive

This painting started because I was gifted with this beautiful bee hive. My awesome husband brought it to me. It has hung around my studio for several years now and I have been waiting for the right idea to pop up so that I could include it in a painting. The hive is a beautiful globe of grey paper hanging gracefully from a branch.  This bear had just the right look of curiosity for this painting. 
It is acrylic on board and is available.
