I did some more work on the barn owl today while I was doing a painting demo at a small wildlife event at Birchwood Shopping Centre. There were birds of prey at the event which attracted lots of people - and also nest box building by Risley Moss - I had some lovely comments by passers by and one lovely lady asked if she could buy it when it was finished so Barny has been sold - I have to say though I'd got quite attached to him so I'll have to paint another for myself! Still got the tree branch and background to complete on this one first though!
Oh and before I go ... the waxwing hunt was successful - we went straight to Deeside Industrial Park, 10 minutes drive from home and there they were next to the Triumph building in Zone 2. I was thrilled to see them, loads of them - such beautiful birds - photos to follow in the next post and more photos from todays wildlife event.
Hope you're all having a wonderful weekend whatever you're doing!
