I was painting this background and ran out of acrylic paint, but I had the creative bug bad and I was dying to create SOMETHING...so I got out my oil pastels and pencils and made this owl. It actually worked out really well and it was so much fun! Once I was finished, I sealed it with some spray sealer so that it wouldn't smudge.
Recently, I was commissioned by a children's hospital to create 10 paintings of various sizes. The theme was animals playing outside. Two of the canvases were so big (four feet x five feet!) that I had a hard time taking photos of them.
I have been so busy lately, I haven't had a lot of time for painting....but I just HAD to get this one finished! I was inspired by a nature photo I saw where the fox almost seemed like he was smiling. It's done with acrylic paint and acrylic inks on a 11x14 stretched canvas.
