A social owl

Another Watercolor Social at Daniel Smith today.  Jodi had suggested applying Incredible (brand) mask * with a small, pointed color shaper *.   I tried it today.  I works quite well and dries fairly quickly… though not a fast as the Molotow Mask *.   I might try decanting a small amount into a tiny container to take on location with me.

The sketch:  this is a Pigmy Owl from my own photo.  I saw him on the Oregon Coast some years ago and was able to get quite close, though the photo was still made with a telephoto lens.

 *     I link to Cheap Joe’s because Daniel Smith doesn’t sell these items on line.  They do have them in the store.

    Cute owl! I wish DS were a little closer to me. . . this sounds like a fun event (especially in winter when there’s nothing that can be done outdoors). It would be fun to join you guys sometime.

    Nice job on this. I find masking isn’t easy to work with and haven’t tried it outdoors. I think it is great that you have these events to go to.
