Evolution of an Owl

The View From My Art Desk

I’m working on a new series of owl paintings. I wanted to share the evolution of how I develop a painting. First I sketch out the basic ink drawing several times to get the design I’m envisioning in my mind. I use sketch paper and go through piles & piles!

Sweet Owl 1Then I add in special aspects like crowns, bubbles, stripes and flowers to give the design the light-hearted character I try to have in all my Lupita paintings.

Sweet Owl 2

Once the design is all set, I draw it on watercolor paper and start the color selection.

Owl 1

I love to combine unexpected colors and I try to always use a touch of bright pink.

This painting is now up in my online Art Shop ~ here  and I hope to take it in to the MSAA Gallery later on this week.

Sending wishes for a beautiful day,

~Emily Lupita
