This month’s Paint it Out! Theme is whoooo whoooo? Birdies!
I painted a pair of owls, after being inspired by our neighbour who texted at 6:30 am one morning “You have a very vocal owl in your back yard, just sayin’ “ lol!
After that I heard it every morning for quite a while.
They’re also inspired by my late grandfather, who was a wise old owl in every way. I remember listening to records with him, like Peter & the Wolf, and drawing along with it at the dining room table, while he had a nip of sherry.
I’m loving these lessons, as I’m really trying to just paint and not worry about anything being perfect or making art for clients or licensable art, just playing and having fun experimenting & trying new things.
