Seraphina And The Night Owl

Finally I get to show you a new picture I just finished up...
It is a coloured pencil on painted paper and is called

"Seraphina And The Night Owl"


Here are a few details...


Finishing this one up seemed to take abit longer than usual.
I think it's because I am pushing my coloured pencil technique, trying to add more texture,
more free movement and more depth by using the pencils on a painted background...
which I am loving but which has caused me to pause and flounder abit here and there, ha ha.
One wouldn't think starting on a dark background instead of a light one would be so different but it is.
I had many moment of frustration where I thought
'Oh Jeepers just start it over on the usual white backing'...
But I purposely wanted to feel and push past that resistance/what-are-you-doing block that
typically bounces up whenever we try something remotely new.

Don't you love her and her lovely vegetarian owl friend...I sure do
(I'll let you know when prints are up in the shop)

See I told you I'd be back soon with a new picture...yayyy.

Be Well lovelies...Be Well.

I love the dark\light thing going on in this one. It looks like it's radiating light. The softened background plays nice against the forground.
