Media: Prismacolor Pencil Crayons on Strathmore Artagain Coal Black Drawing Paper. Brightened and embellished here and there with white Gouache, metallic gold acrylic paint and iridescent blue acrylic paint.
Fourth in the Totem Series
This one inspired by the beautiful barn owl which I have been blessed to see on a few rare occasions back in England.
The more I do these pencil crayon totem pieces, the more I’m coming to enjoy working in this new kind of media especially with this kind of subject matter. I love playing with the patterns and colours. My favourite part in particular is adding the final highlights of white gouache, gold paint and iridescent acrylic. In the sunshine this piece really sings.
