Day 4 of 30 day challenge

I have a cold.   I'm stuck in the house.   So, I am more ambitious with my painting challenge today.    I've been wanting to do a mixed media winking owl for the last few weeks but didn't have the time.       I spent about an hour cutting tiny feathers from a page from an old book.     That I could do sitting in the solarium, soaking up the sun and enjoying it's warmth.   I started the painting process out there too, but the paint dried too fast and I was getting roasted at 80 degrees, so I came inside to finish it.      I used white gesso, and golden acrylic paints.    Jenkins Green, Paynes Grey,  burnt umber.      Here he is, painted in my art journal.
