Hi Lulay. Yes, the eyes are super, grab your attention straight away. I think you need more detail in the body, the fade-out there doesn't really work. Personally I'd also make the background a little less neutral, either in terms of colour or perhaps a hint of environment...suggestions of leaves, trees?

I like this, no, I love this guy! He is quite impressive, his eyes are wonderful, maybe just a little too much highlight for my liking, but otherwise a beautifully painted watercolour.

I really like the minimalistic background, this painting will look most effective matted in a 4" matt and simple frame.

I too like your minimalist presentation of these birds.....
in fact.....I liked the only partially detailed look.....like the snow owl....
blending the less important stuff away...leaving those eyes to stare at me.....yd
