Companion souls - wip

I have started on this image, (working?) title is "Companion souls" - there is an owl just next to the woman.
I will experiment with grisaille, drawing with graphite and paint with watercolors  on top of that. I am curious to see, if that will work out fine. Being more a person who draw than paint, that will suit me fine :)
The motif of the woman and owl (and a treetrunk) are developed from my desire to draw beyond realism. The drawing will be realistic, but with a sense of  "ethereal"-feeling. I hope.
