Into the black- owl, Indian ink with some colour

It seems lately my preferred choice is the darks, charcoal and Indian ink in particular. I have fallen for this sleek liquid, I could paint a whole page black with it and I would enjoy the moment? Weird, but I like the way it applies, either with a dip pen or brush, for the moment it is brush that gets the thumbs up. Thought I should add some colour for this owl, which I applied first, before the dense blackness crept in.

About REcreate-RebeccaEvansCreate

My name is Rebecca Evans, living in the New Forest I have been inspired to paint the many animals often seen around me. Having ridden since Childhood, painting equines was a natural path to follow. I use a variety of media, watercolour, oil, charcoal, pastel,inks, plus a few more, infact I will try most things. Choosing the medium to work with can really change the effect of the art, and therefore the character of the animal. Sometimes it is an instant decision, sometimes it is the mood from within me which determines which medium I choose to use. I never know what might inspire me next, but if it’s hairy, I will be sure to try.

    Stunning owl Rebecca – superb plumage and the layering over colours gives it a suitably mystical/dark feel. They are magical creatures!
