the arty owl painting...

...be warned...this is probably the most bonkers one i've done so far...but bonkers works for me! ;) when i started this canvas...it was half an hour before tea...and i had a stinking headache...but i thought i just might feel better if i created something to distract myself...and this is what emerged! its rough and quick and my attempt at being a little *free~er*...i'm not totally convinced i like it...but oddly his Nibs keeps putting it up on the wall every time i take it down...so i have to assume he loves it as much as he says he does :) my favourite areas of the picture are the leaves, which i cut roughly from pp scraps and painted with Dylusions mica spray... ...i also love this floral section which is a large BG rubon over which i've painted , doodles and then added a Prima paper flower which i've also painted with mica paint...its properly bursting with colour and life...just what i needed!
even if the results aren't perfect...i think its really good to push yourself our of your comfort zone every know and then...and i'm really working on being less of a perfectionist...why don't you have a go? set yourself a deadline of half an hour...and see what you can do! :)
