Owl Be Seeing You #Strathmore #Watercolor #ArtJournal


Day 6 in my 10-day watercolor a day journal.  I decided to try something different.  This painting was NOT done in 1/2 an hour.  More like two hours.

 

My husband loves it when I do paintings of critturs, so I decided to do an owl.  And I ended up fussing with it.  Ah well.

This was painted with a limited palette — Quiller Permanent Orange and Ultramarine Blue, Qor Quinacridone Gold and Winsor & Newton Raw Sienna.  Orange and Blue mixed together give you a range of umbers, so most of the bird was painted with those two colors.  I just used different concentrations of each to get varying tones.
