Papa Owl

Water Color 7X14
This piece has the most meaning behind it. I painted it representing someone who has a special place in my heart.
First I sketched out the placement of the guitar and hand, then i added detail into the fingers making sure the proportion was right.
I had to work quickly because water color dries fast and once you put it down you can't change it to much or it will just wipe away. So I was very careful with mixing the right shade of grey before putting it on the paper. This was definitely a challenging piece, it was my first time using water color at this level and I learned a great deal. I finished the piece in one sitting but it took me a good 4-5 hours of non stop painting to complete.
