Owl Mixed Media Work-in-Progress
I took a break from doing any art all weekend to rest my arm which always helps. So yesterday I got out an old painting and decided to try to add some collage and make a whole different creation.
So I cut these little birds out of a magazine but am going to paint over them with different colors. There are also other magazine pieces under the paint. They are the “collage” added for texture but I’m not sure it shows up well. I haven’t done much collage. Also I haven’t decided what to do in the bottom right corner yet.
The original painting is an acrylic on canvas I did years ago of just a setting sun on the dark ocean. But now it is going to be a moon in a dark forest, thus the owl. I decided to do an outline of my owl with a white Uni-ball pen before painting it. The great thing about acrylics is being able to do things over on them!
I took another break today because it’s our daughter’s birthday so we are taking veggie pizzas to her house tonight.
I plan on getting back to this tomorrow and then on to other projects as well.
Have a wonderful day and give someone you love a big hug! 😁
