Art Tip when Varnishing

A little bit of a tip here I have just created...

When vanishing a wrapped canvas, put blue tack on the bases of three or four shot glasses attach the canvas and hey presto...you can gloss the top and sides at the same time....

Owl in Flight

Blog by Ellie Burdett

Owl in Flight - Acrylic Painting

www.ellieartwork.com I wasn’t sure where this picture was going when I started it.......always a risk; not to pre-plan, my only idea was clouds. So off I went and painted the sky with layers of pastel coloured paint that took my fancy in a diagonal fashion. Why diagonally - I’m not sure....maybe because I’m left handed. After drying I automatically went for the airbrush to layer in the clouds using a very wobbly and torn piece of paper that took my eye.

Method:

I studied the clouds for some time and realised the most obvious subject would be an owl in flight (of course....strange artistic mind). Using transfer paper I moved my sketch to the canvas and lightly painted the outline with unbleached titanium white. I then filled out the owl with more unbleached titanium white following the direction of the feathers and matching my paints strokes to the shapes of the feathers. I gradually added variations of colour for the feathers details using different shades of brown darker to lighter. Final feather highlights were then added in titanium white. A few washes with glazing medium further defined the colours and finished with a coat of medium gloss varnish.

Supplies list:

  • Liquitex Basics paint
  • Creatix spray paint
  • Neo Iwata airbrush
  • 40cm x 40cm square art in a canvas 280gsm
  • Liquitex heavy body unbleached titanium white

Artists note:

I actually thought this project would make a really good cushion so curiosity being what it is went on to order a print. Happy painting Ellie.
