Owl 🦉 Painting

Hello everyone

Well I've been sketching and painting with my Royal Langnickel watercolours again using Daler Rowney mixed media paper to create a multicoloured owl.

I started off with a rough sketch outline of the shape and the eyes and then set about giving a wash of a bit of colour.
Those eyes looked a bit spooky so I did a bit more work on it.


And then with a few more hours work on the owl and the background I was happy with the outcome and this is the final watercolour painting with some close ups.




 and here's a close up of the eyes..... 
I used salt on the face and background to give texture and a little bit of a quirky look.

 Here's my final owl.  I'm so pleased with my work and all those that have seen it love it too and it's given me confidence to carry on with my art journey.


Hope you like it.
