I have been working most of the day on my Barred Owl. I have been layering feathers on his chest, adding a bar on each one.
Here is a closeup of how they are looking along with his talons which have been quilted prior to doing the feathers. There is a lot of down in and amongst the feathers on his chest so that look will be done with the quilting. He is getting there. Next will be his face....the hardest part and most important part.
