Snowy Owl by Joyce Jackson

Snowy Owl
by Joyce Jackson

Prompt: wip or finished work from any past SF
prompted by: Joyce Jackson, during Sketch Fest #70 (December, 2015)

This is a finished version of a sketch!

Original is Sold. Colored pencil, graphite, pastels, watercolor, metallic ink & paint. 9 x 12" on tan paper. Description of the Original: The moon has extreme glitter metallic silver acrylic paint. The stars have multi-color acrylic paint. Not showing in photo. It adds a certain dazzle. A mixture of realism and fantasy.(?) The arc of light along moon & stars - fantasy-ish. The owl is a bit more like realism. Maybe surrealism overall? The viewer is free to decide. It was challenging to create this on tan paper. The creation process precipitated the necessity of buying better white colored pencil and sets of pastels. I had to work extra hard to achieve whiteness of the owl. :)
