Wrenglow

I keep trying to find ways to paint birds, a way that I feel like I’m doing some justice to them, but not just churning out Yet Another Wildlife Portrait. I still don’t know if I’ve found it, but this one came out kinda neat.

8 x 12, mixed media over digital

Scanning this one was a bear. The blue glow is not quite so stark on the original, and the colors blend more smoothly into the background–the india ink is reflecting the light differently than the colored pencil, and that makes the scanner go into a tizzy. I had to do a lot of tweaking, and while this is close, the original is subtler. The alternative, however, involves tripods and swearing and lighting and I shudder to contemplate it.

Prints available, original for sale, drop a line for pricing and availability and all that.

Wrenglow Goes To E-bay!

Since there was some significant interest in this one, I’m sending it to e-bay!

(Auction starts a bit higher than usual on this one, because it’s a fairly large piece by my standards– 8 x 16–and I am absurdly proud of it and would cry a little if it went for less than that.)

I will also be auctioning the second of the great horned owl masks off here shortly–just gotta wait for the glue on the strap holders to dry…

Great Horned Owl Mask II

I'm an owl!

This is my second Great Horned Owl Mask, and pretty similar to the first, except that I added more gray to the feather design and darkened the bottom of the white eye circles, because…err…seemed like a good idea at the time.

As promised, this one goes to e-bay, because I have no idea how to price these, and am hoping the market can figure it out.

I’m noodling around with a few other designs as we speak, including a snowy owl, although I have no idea if that one will come out. It’s white. I hate painting white. Grrr.

Buy the owl!
