Crested Owl in the Gandoca Manzanillo Wildlife Refuge, Costa Rica. 5"X7"
I'm heading to Costa Rica in a month or so and really looking forward to the trip. We are staying in a coastal wildlife Refuge and my imagination is running wild with thoughts of jungle owls. Nell is doing a full-on project on jungle sound ecology down there for school. Should be a awesome trip. Anything to look for? what fish to eat?
BTW: Pulled up Crested Owl on google image search for my painting..whoa! Cool scary looking bird!
Painting note: A go at Cartoon style. I used a "fine" sharpe to outline major forms after color was complete. Also I skipped using a mask on this and just went for the white-space by eye.
