Added Olly’s eyes but had to take his beak away as I realised his beak was then too low. Easily fixed (mercifully). He’ll soon be with you!
Olly is coming along nicely….but the new canvas? Yeah…not so good. Nothing like as envisaged so far (as usual). I have to learn to take the rough with the smooth!
I’m starting two birds at once. One is a commissioned painting of an owl. I have changed my mind a few times on the actual owl I will do and I will now keep it a surprise – but here is the primed canvas that Olly the Owl will be painted on. PLEASE let me do him justice!
My other bird will be a blackbird that I am calling Beau. I’m yet to be fixed on which medium I will use for him. I may try him with watercolour first, so how he goes. I also have oils now and so far I have only painted with acrylic. I’ll probably try the watercolour first. If it all goes well, I can frame it and present it beautifully. Time will tell…
