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.

Moonlight Acrylic Whale Tail Painting:

Supplies List:

  • Liquitex basics paint
  • Creatix Paint
  • Neo Iwata Airbrush
  • Stencil for sky background
  • Liquitex glazing medium
  • Artina Canvas
  • Pro-art brushes

Method:

I Painted the sky with a mix of phalo green and phalo blue then airbrushed over a space feel with the stencil.  For the main body of the base drawing, I used a water-soluble pencil to sketch out the outline (this ensured no pencil marks were visible after painting). I next layered in the mountains working from the furthest away from the viewer.  Several layers were applied to include Grey (base colour), purple, blue, white and burn't umber. The tree line was next and blocked in with hookers green with subsequent layers of lighter green shades mixed down gradually with white.  There were around four layers of green to complete the look.  I find layers add depth to the painting and give a good level of contrast. Unusually I outlined the whale tails before putting in the background - a bit of an experiment as usually I would finish the background and then add fore ground detail.  Varations of phalo blue and phalo green where again used to create the ocean, detailing with light blue sea foam finally highlighted with white. The whale tails were painted using a deep grey tone mixing titanium white with mars black. Detail over the fins again using lighter version of the blue tones above and finished with titanium white Finally water falling from the fins and around the base of the whale tails was added to ensure that the whale tails looked part of the sea rather than just stuck on.  I did enjoy this piece - especially learning ocean colour variations.  The great thing about acrylic painting is that if you don't like the colour scheme you can paint or glaze right over the top (as long as the previous layers are dry).
