The sketch is kind of loose and not perfect but I do try to get proportions and positions as accurate as possible in the initial sketch. Here I tried the sketch in oil, as opposed to pencil or charcoal. It has it's pros and cons. Notice the marks on the sides of the canvas marking it into thirds and halves. Place these markers on your canvas as reference points as you sketch your painting.

Owl painting from start to finish: Part 2
Below are pictures of the Owl still life painting in progress. I started this one with a sketch in thinned down oil with an and tinted the whole canvas that burnt sienna type hue.
I just noticed the poor quality of these photos. They are quite blurry. If I have time, I will see if I have any that are better quality. As for now, they get the basic point across.
