I’ve more or less completed the cowl and began working on the background.  I decided to add in some of the rocks and leaves than were in the original reference just to ground him.  I used mostly warm greys from the Polychromos line for the rocks because I wanted the blues of the bird to stand out.  If I’d used cool greys it would have all blended together more.  I’m working a little more on the talons as well.  Hope to complete this piece by end of next week (fingers crossed) as I have a few more in the queue to get started on.
