Owl painting


6" x 8"
Acrylic and colored pencil on watercolor board

Shocked? a bird all intact with feathers and everything! This was my weekend project, and it was so nice to break out my colored pencils again... I think they will always be my first and true love... but there's no getting them smooth on cold press watercolor board! I really liked mixing the paint and pencils so I shall now be investigating supports that will work with both... any suggestions?


  1. this is rich! i could see it as a greeting card! look into water color pencils. the color can be pulled and manipulated with a brush.

  2. I LOVE that! It looks like it was so fun, and those colors are just fabulous :)

  3. Starr, this one is lovely! Quirky and elegant. Nice!

  4. Love the owl pair tat! Though I am slightly biased... Awesome ink, (skin and paper)! I've been pulling together ideas for my tree of life, you will be hearing from me soon!
