Watercolor on Paper
These two owls were painted for a very special couple, my Aunt Genean and her husband Harry. I really hope they like them. I tried to do something a little different with these owls, giving them a burst of color. They are typically brown and white but I thought that would be boring, so here they are! My Aunt Genean is a great lady and her husband Harry is an awesome guy too. They are a lot of fun and have a great sense of humor. I always enjoy spending time with them. In the last couple years, they've done so much to help our family by taking care of my grandmother and one of my aunts. I don't know how they keep up with it all...this is a little present for them.
Below you'll find my homework from my watercolor class. We were told to paint 4 objects in 45 minutes. I used cheap paper (Canson) and quickly remembered why I don't use anything but Arches. It doesn't even feel right under my brush, but mission accomplished none the less. I need to keep working on painting loosely and quickly. I'm used to taking my time with paintings, but this is great practice.
