Funky Owls

      I've been working on some watercolor art journal pages.  This one is of some funky little owls.  To me they look like dad, little daughter and mom.   I asked my youngest grand-daughter if that was her and her mommy and daddy.  She thought that was funny.

       I remembered to take some pictures as I did this page.  I used Neocolor II water-soluble wax pastel crayons and pan watercolors. So here is the progression from sketch to finished page.  Hope you enjoy.

 Blending the watercolor with brush and water.                                                        
                                                                   Adding detail with pen.
                                                               Adding more detail and shading.               
                 Finished page.
