Owl with Attitude – the process

Owl with Attitude by Meg Mader The Journey Studio

Here is my new painting ‘Owl with Attitude’ and the process of how it progressed. This is one of my larger paintings at 48cm x 48cm and is currently available on Bluethumb.

This was so much fun to create as I was in a bit of a quirky mood at the time and let the painting lead me. The result…a rainbow owl. Fantastic!

  1. A light sketch to get the right shape
  2. Small amounts of colour
  3. Blocking in more colour to see the owl start to emerge
  4. A little bit of pink to add some warmth (this is where things started to change from boring brown)
  5. I loved using the pink so much that other colours just started calling to me
  6. More layers of colour to bring out the eyes and add character
