Saw-Whet Owl

Saw-Whet Owl. Michele Clamp. Watercolor 11″x14″

Let’s paint an owl I said. I love painting owls I said. They’re really fun! Oh boy, oh boy what a toughie. I’d forgotten how hard all those delicate markings were and this almost ended up in the bin. But I continued on he finally came together. A few fixes needed tomorrow but not too shabby overall.

Vase and Pot Finished – Paul Foxton’s Threads Workshop

Vase and Cup from Paul Foxton’s Threads group

Yesterday was session two in Paul Foxton’s Threads workshop. I should put a word in for this if you want to learn the ins and outs of color and value. He’s a great teacher and each session is enormous fun. I’ve learned a lot and had a great time doing it. And all for $20 a month!

I’ll probably refine this a little more tomorrow. That handle is annoying me. Here it is next to the photo reference.

Actually I don’t think I posted the previous intermediates. Here they are.

Three Roses

So what do you think of this? I can’t decide. We started this in class but I hadn’t realized how hard this was and there was a vote to abandon it. I finished it off yesterday and can’t work out whether I really like it or think it’s terrible.
