    WHERE in the world did you learn to draw Owls like this! Fantastic!

      I sit down with paint and brush, and just paint. I never painted on black paper with watercolors until last year. I discovered black Gesso, and painted in oils on black panels about 8 years ago. I liked doing that because it changed the way I painted and the hues of color I used. I applied the knowledge I learned doing that to this painting in opaque watercolor. Then last year I decided to add a little gum arabic to my watercolors after I started painting on black pastel paper. I liked the effect, but didn't like the texture of the paper. I can draw just about anything, but I have to practice repeatedly until I figure out how to paint something consistently well. Thus all these owls. At first the eyes are all open, and then after a few painted owls I start working on expression. This is all to lead up to painting an Owl winging it's way somewhere in some future painting. I'm glad you like my paintings, and really drawing and painting every day is what makes me capable of drawing owls this way. Plus, I really like Owls. I've always admired Audubon and other Bird Artists. Nobody really taught me...I just concentrate, relax, and draw...then I paint and draw, and sometimes I draw with my paint brush. I hope that helps you understand... :shrug

      I do understand, but I am jealous of your talent! I can't draw a circle without a template! LOL
