Linocut in Progress: The owl emerges. Kinda.

Linocut in progress, Step 5

On the previous pass I warmed the image with a light transparent brown, and now I'm trying to subtly swing the whole piece back the other way. This pass was a transparent gray... just straight-up black in a big pile of transparent base.

It still looks quite brown, but except for the details of the leaf buds and some rusty bits in the owl I think everything from here on out will be layers of transparent gray. I might try sticking a hint of blue in it, but not much. I want the overall mood to remain overcast and quiet.
