Peacock Owls

I received a request recently for an owl with "peacock' colors including purple and also eyelids, so it has been fun playing with that idea. This spotty owl is the first one.

The second owl is quite different to the first. I was really pleased with it and then realised I hadn't put the gold eyelids on it.  Kind of annoyed that I forgot but was still very pleased with the result. Lacroix is his name and is currently listed on ebay for another few days.

The third owl is similar to the second. I remembered the eyelids but wanted to experiment with different eye feathers and beak etc.  He's pretty cool and more harmonious than the second, however I personally prefer the contrast of the second one.  I have only made the three so far but I will make a few more color combinations till I've exhausted the urge!
