Dream Owl

Posted on September 14, 2015 at 8:10 AM

This time I want to share my work process with this Dream Owl painting. Customer asked me to use blue color and not to make it realistic. I then made some thumbnail sketches for him to choose from.

After the selection painting could start. He proveidet the canvas for me and I begun to splash some color on it. First I just put there some yellows and blues and sprayed water to have some depth. Then I made the underpainting still using watercolors. Spraying water ocassionaly and hoping for happy accidents.

Getting in some white acrylic.

Some leaf metal.

Black acrylic.

More details. flipping canvas upsidedown and back. Adding blue to the acrylic palette.

And here we have a finished painting.

Last but not least some clear varnish to protect those delicate watercolors I used at the beginning. I hope this was some what useful and you enjoyed. This was pretty straight forward and really fun project. And I have some cool left over thumbs.
