The first steps that Su takes in this series, is to paint the 30x30 composite board in black.  She makes sure there are no runs, and that the covering is smooth all over.

Next comes the painstaking tasks of blocking out the light (or dark), depending on which color she is destined to use next.  The image is literally built up in layers, with Su adjusting the tape each time.

Due to the methodology employed to do this, each piece is unique.  If Su were to do another Barn Owl, it is unlikely that the results would be identical.  That being said, there is only one for sale.

 The techniques employed by Su and her airbrushing, make use of adding the the paint to the image.  She then removes, some of the paint, taking it back to the previous layer(s), as appropriate to the picture.

To work with these pictures, Su requires good eye detail.  Why?  As the phrase goes, the eyes are the window to the soul.  They bring life to the images.  

You've just seen the barn owl without it's eyes being worked on.  The image is fairly "flat"... now take a look with the eyes being built up in the layers...
