Another post for #WorldWatercolorMonth

wwm2017

This time featuring a trio of owls. Wise Old Oswald is on the left, Clever Clara is in the middle, and in the hole in the tree – just peeking out, is Ace.

Well, you must always have an ace in the hole, mustn’t you?

(Could this be a clue? Or a red herring? Have I already posted another clue? Or a red herring? And, did I post a clue last year? Or a red herring?) I had to reverse the polarity of the brightness in the header image (also the one just above this!), just to make it stand out more, a bit wishy-washy colour-wise, I feel this one is. My Inner Yoda taking over is trying.

A very quick sketch, this one, took about an hour and a half from beginning to posting. I say posting… I mean sending through the scheduling portal for it to rematerialise all new and posted in Blogland at a later time. I don’t know now whether I’m ahead, behind or on track with these watercolours. A quick recap is needed, methinks. A quick sleep before, however… there’s plenty of time.

    1. Thanks, Raili.
      They always seem a little moody or deep in thought to me, owls. Mind you, they are always thinking, apparently.

    1. Thanks, Eugenia. I’m replying in the wrong order, but I’m pretending not to be.

  6. Sweet painting. I think my favourite owl is the one hiding in the tree hollow, – probably because it doesn’t look cross or angry. 🙂
