Great Horned Owl 1st Post 2022

Hi Folks,

I’m out of clay again, and if in fact you check you check out the little bonnet the owl is wearing, along with the feathers on the breast that haven’t been detailed yet, that’s the end of the last batch.

I wanted to point out that adding the feathers is not only adding detail to the sculpture but is also determining the final shape. If there is low spot, I increase the thickness of the feather/feathers in the low area. If there is a high area, I increase the thickness around that area. Needless to say, this leveling is only possible up to about a 1/4 inch of depth.

The reason I brought this leveling thing up is that, if you check out the owl’s wing, there is a definite low spot in the area where the primary feathers blend into the secondaries.

!!!!!Happy New Years!!!!(A Little Late)

Although I have been pursuing my art in one form or another all of my life, it is still an adventure, and one that I have never tired of.
