Bitter Sweet

This is the second owl painting for a friend of mine, the first one was the rye whiskey painting with the owl skeleton. I think they'll go good together. At the moment the owl is just in pencil so you can't really see what's going on. It's perched on the lemon tree holding a dead rat in it's mouth, beautiful animal, deadly killer, bitter sweet. I got the idea for the "lemon extract" add from the same book of old ads and letter type styles that I got the idea for the "rye whiskey" painting. I should be done with this already but the holidays and winter lethargy have kept things at snail's pace.

Rye Whiskey 2

First attempt at cross hatching, I think I'm gonna keep going with it.
