Work in Progress – Great Horned Owl

A sneak peek at the progress on the next painting in my Totem series. Other commission work and editorial cartoons have been taking up the bulk of my time lately, so I haven’t been able to spend as much time on this as I’d like, but I’m looking to change that.

This is the most challenging piece I’ve ever worked on, and there is a lot more detail yet to paint. I can’t even estimate when this will be done, but I’m just going to keep working on it, and hopefully it will be sooner, rather than later. I have many more animals I want to paint.

  1. Incredible detail Patrick, cant wait to see the finished piece.
    How big will this be.


  2. Thanks, Karl. The working document size is 18" X 24" at 300ppi. While I know I'll do an 12"X16" and 18"X24 for canvas print edition sizes, I may go do a large edition size as well, although I'm not sure what it'll be yet. I think the detail will support a larger size.

  3. I LOVE owls! Can't wait to see it finished!

  4. The eyes are beautiful.
