Title and Medium
Winter Owl. Acrylics on canvas 16" x 20"
Paints used: ivory black, titanium white, burnt sienna and yellow ochre.
I love owls, specially the white ones and I want to paint owls for long time. When I read about the January project, I decided to paint a winter owl. I used the yellow ochre for the sun rays reflecting in the snow because I want that the painting reflects a peaceful winter sunset.
For the owl, I used titanium white over burned sienna, using a little of scumbling technique.
Then, finally I used a velatura technique, with a lighter wash of titanium white.
What I'd Do Differently
- Work broken color technique for the owl.
- Use a little more titanium white on background.
