I had so much fun doing this owl canvas that I just had to share it with you. Here is a step-by-step guide to how I created it. PLEASE NOTE: I used a heat gun between each step.
- 12″ x 12″ canvas
- black marker
- round objects to trace for circles of several sizes (ie. pill bottle, masking tape roll)
- various patterned paper
- matte gel medium
- several paintbrushes (from thin to roughly 1″)
- acrylic paints
- your favourite stencils
- 3-4 colours ink mist
- modeling paste & palette knife
- mist bottle for water
- old paperback book for pages
- black oil pastel
Outline your owl with your black oil pastel one more time. Feel free to add bits of colour around the edges or in other areas of your canvas to complete if desired.
This completes your whimsical owl canvas! If you publish your creation anywhere (Flickr, your blog, etc.), please feel free to post a link below; I’d love to see your work!
