This owl painting is going to have lots of earthy tones mixed in with the brighter colours. I want the eyes to stand out so I have used the opposite colours of yellow and blue next to each other. Complementary colours help an artwork to gain attention to a particular area.
Update – the owl is now completed and I definitely had eye lash envy again!
Below is a an example of a previous owl painting I did which went to its new loving home quite a while ago.
