The Great Owl Repaint Project part 3

After moving all of my craft supplies were kind of muddled. Now that I've unpacked everything and gotten them back into a sensible sort of order, I've been able to get back into my typical crafting habits. Recently, that has meant working on my owl repainting. (Check out the previous owls, Clara and Leif) Here's my latest installment. 

The before:
This particular owl presented an unusual set of issues given it's high gloss finish. Even sanding didn't put a dent in the gloss. This has left the paint a little fragile but the acrylic finish coat helps.

The after:
I modeled the coloring after the Southern White-faced Owl

This owl is the mother of the family. Her name is Beatrice.
