The Forest Spirit: Time Lapse Painting

This video shows about 7 hours of painting today. I'm working in acrylic on canvas (30x40").

I started with the image in my head but didn't work with reference of any kind. This idea came from a vision I had about 4 months ago and at the time I made a quick sketch but this painting evolved away from that concept quite a bit. It was going to be an owl shaman, but this painting didn't retain a whole lot of owl energy. This is not finished, it will get another few hours of work at least before I call it done. 

And here is a still of the painting at the end of the day.
