Sending smiles and a happy doodle your way today. 🙂
This fun doodle I worked on while waiting for my flight at the airport last week. It was a nice way to relax and pass the time…

Hope you have a great weekend and do something fun!
This little guy is on his way to a new home.
I recently painted a chickadee for a friend retiring and moving to Maine.
painted on 7 x 10 inch Canson Mix Media paper
The black-capped chickadee is the state bird of Maine and the white pine is the state tree. I thought a painting of both would make a nice gift. 🙂
and I’m so happy… he really liked it and said that he was planning on hanging it in his new home. yay!

Ink and watercolor, I love that combination. I have an Owl painting to share with you today. My painting was inspired by a beautiful photo of a Great Horned Owl on pexels.com.
I was attracted to the big bright eyes of this Owl and tried make sure they really popped in this painting. I started off with a light pencil sketch of the eyes and beak making sure to get the proper placement and distance between them. As I’ve noted before, this is a key step for me before diving in.
Watercolor Tip: Always make sure that the eyes are dark enough, don’t be shy with color here. It is also important to leave a few white spots for where the light hits the eyes.
Owl ink and watercolor painted on 9 x 12 inch Stillman & Birn Beta sketchbook
As I was painting, I remembered to use a light touch and tried to make all of my ink and paint markings in the same direction as the feathers on the Owl. I love the prominent feathered tufts on his head, a cute and wild hairdo. ❤
I plan to work on another Owl sometime in the future, there is so much to learn and improve upon. It was a lot of fun, quite a Hoot!
