Sketches for New Painting

Speaking of new paintings, I've started these sketches almost two months ago but didn't finish them in time for Jill and Terence's wedding (the painting was going to be their wedding present). Soooo....I'm hopefully going to finish it during reading week, and then I can give it to them while I'm back in Toronto. Fingers crossed!

Here is the actual composition sketch for the painting (above)

This is the close up of the second owl (it'll go in the foreground) are the two little guys who sit on the window ledge in front of my desk. I see them everyday and it's become an inside joke between Tasia and I that they represent the two of us (in a "plasticine friendship" kinda way)!

Have a great weekend!
