Love the Barn Owl Arthur. Can't wait to see it develop. And those Avocets? Astonishing!

I'm working on a barn owl right now and it's an inspiration to see yours here. Can't wait to see the central flier coming on.

One of these days I'm going to have to go out and find some barn owls (easier said than done I'm sure) just to add to my appreciation of these.

Nice studies!

I reckon the first Tyto would look great in that position it's in. With some Norfolk landscape below it?

That's what I thought you were going to do with it!

Everything you paint shows your deep love for your subjects. And, I applaud that!!

I'm always happily surprised by the conclusion Arthur and am sure I will be this time as well. I'm not sure how you're going to pull it all together but I have no doubt that you will!

Arthur these are beautiful studies of Barn Owls and as others have hinted would be good to see the one carrying the Vole in a larger painting with a good backdrop .

Lovely.

I still think that top right Tyto would be great in a large Norfolk landscape!
