This dear little barn owl has had quite a journey and he has a loving expression to share, “love and light”.
I started off using an online drawing app to create this little owl, it was just going to be a fun sketch, but I thought I’d turn it into a proper art work, as the design appealed to me. I have worked this over in many layers in Procreate for eyepad, freehand, with my stylus pen. I’ve used a number of my own photographs and other artworks as overlays and underlays to achieve the desired watercolour like result. The lined paper is also my own photograph of paper I’d painted and overlaid to give this the finished touch. I imagine because this design is versatile, cards and prints might be suitable to say hello to a friend, a canvas in a baby or child’s or teens bedroom, for birthday greetings, Valentine’s day, to welcome a newborn and perhaps even to uplift a loved one.
