Burrowing Owl Watercolor painting

"Bruce"original watercolour painting

I had a little staring contest going with this burrowing owl.
(I like to call him Bruce)

He wasn't letting up, and I had um, err, ahem, allergies!
yes, that's it - my eyes were so dry I just had to blink.
But let me tell you, on a good day I would have held my own.

Painting is ACEO size: 2.5 x 3.5 inches
on Arches 140lb cold press paper using the following
Daniel Smith extra fine watercolours: 

Quinacridones ~ gold & burnt orange
Phthalo blue
Ultramarine Turquoise
and Naphthamide Maroon
