Short eared Owl in evening light

I have seen this year more short-eared owls than usually. They have great contrastic plumage and long wings. Because their interresting look I have made several paintings of them.

In this painting setting sun colors this Short-eared Owl. Wings become deep orange when last sun rays goes trough feathers. I used airbrush in first layer and then I continued by scratching and making thing colour layers. This painting is done to Ampersand claybord with Holbein Aeroflash paints.
