Collie's Owl

It's been a long summer and I have been off my wagon for sometime. But I am back and the creative mind is working. I have decided to do a series of paintings based on the season of fall. Portraying some of my very close friends as models in the paintings. The idea is the manifestation of fall through mankind. I believe to a certain extent my friends and I are pretty down to earth. As artist, we find beauty in our environments and artistically develop our ideas through our mediums. And I love fall. I mean I really love fall. The colors, the leaves, It is just beautiful, I could not think of a more magical season to paint.

Just a few step by step phases of my work.

I really enjoyed painting this owl. It took me a while to figure out what I wanted to do. Like 3 hours. Lol.. I think it is because I am retarded sometimes. I fuss too much.

Blocking in colors. The usual.

Almost there.

And done. Look for a scan soon guys.


  1. Wow, I like this a lot. Especially the background, there's enough subtle detail to keep me staring at it for a while. Also:

    Please allow me to nerd out for a moment over the title. :)
    "Collie's Owl" reminded me of "Cowly Owl," the translation of the phrase "Vachement Chouette," which in French means "really really cool."

    And yes, again, the piece is awesome.

  2. That owl is absolutely gorgeous! I can't wait to see the scan of this piece and really get to experience the details.

  3. Thank you guys. I appreciate the love.. Really
