Back in 2005, a friend and I were privileged to see some baby Great Horned owls exploring outside of their nest.

I’ve been wanting to capture this scene for years and have finally done it!  “Out of the Nest” is an acrylic painting on canvas that wraps around the sides and is 20″ x 24″.

During the course of this painting I took progress shots in order to blog about it, but then there were so many, I thought it would be fun to make a video out of it.  I paint at different times of the day so the lighting is not consistent, but hopefully the way I approach a complicated painting like this can be seen.  Enjoy!
