Face Time

I spent last night working on my large eagle painting.  His face got some color, I softened the blacks where I had drawn in watercolor pencil, and I worked some strokes up from his collar area so that it starts looking like there are separate feathers.  There are lots of details left to add (and a big, “watercolory” surprise at the end), but I am getting excited about the look of this guy.  I am trying not to get too excited, as painting one of our national symbols comes with a lot of responsibility and I don’t want to overthink or become too fussy, but yeah, I am excited with a side order of calmness. Hopefully there will be more paint and coffee flowing tonight!
