Progress has been made on the feathers of my barn owl. There a lot of under feathers to it is taking some time. I also redid his feet. Did not like the fabric choice of the other feet or the shape. These are much better.
Put on more of the tail feathers and added the dark section using a feather fabric I have had in my stash. Much of this will be hidden by the next layer but I hope you can see how it is coming together.
In the meantime I am again watching the Bald Eagles prepare their nest up in Minnesota. It was so interesting to watch them last year I had to watch again. This is Zoey's first time seeing Eagles and she is totally mesmerized.
Watson has now returned to the studio for short periods of time. He seems fascinated with Zoey's activity level. He still keeps a comfortable space between him and her but progress is progress and I am happy with how this is going since it will be two weeks tomorrow. I think he is saying "Why does she get to chew on the bolt of fusible and I get yelled at?" Don't worry .... she did get told no shortly after this photo.
