An Owl Family in the Pumpkin Patch

Here is a new fall painting. The art in the circle was created on watercolor paper with watercolors, colored pencil, gold glitter paint, and pen.

The faces of the owls were created with colored pencil and pen and their bodies watercolor and pen.

The watercolor art has been attached to a piece of mdf that has been painted dark teal, sanded and then stained. Six green vintage thumbtacks hold the watercolor in place.

Almost That Time of Year!!!

I love creating pumpkins, whether it is with colored pencils or acrylic paint they are one of my favorite subjects. Since I am learning to work with watercolors I thought it was about time I tried painting a pumpkin.  I really enjoy working with watercolors.
Here is a early autumn painting!

An Owl, a Sunflower, and a Butterfly ...

I wanted to share two new paintings that I listed in my shop! Both of these paintings were created on stretched canvases, I know me painting on canvas!!! I can't remember the last time I painted on canvas, it actually was a nice change. I am really happy with the appearance and the texture of the pieces.

The first painting I completed was the White Butterfly resting on the Sunflower. I love how the center of the sunflower came out. The colors really fade nicely into one another. Whenever I look into the center of a sunflower I don't just see brown or black I see a rainbow of colors. Sunflowers have been one of my favorite flowers to create since I have been a kid. They are just so bold and striking yet simple and uncomplicated.
 I thought a white butterfly would be a nice stark contrast to the colorful butterfly. They are simply beautiful.

My favorite thing about this painting is that it is a bit spooky, I would not say he is a cute owl. I love how piercing his eyes are. I think the combination of the color and size of his eyes give him a creepy appearance. Another detail I love about the painting is the ability to see the teal background stand out among the feather colors. I think it adds a beautiful depth to the art.

Have a beautiful Thursday!!!
