Swooping Tawny Owl.⠀ I’ve completed my Swooping Tawny Owl meaning no more TAwny owl illustrations (at least in this series) I have had fun with this new way of illustrating and I’m excited to move onto the next subject. I’m thinking of red foxes. This was completed using @procreate on my old iPad pro⠀ ⠀

The last owl is now underway.⠀ The third and final Owl is now in progress. I’ve enjoyed working on these owls but I am ready to move onto something new. I can’t wait to see the final outcome of this one.⠀ ⠀

Tawny Owl, Perched in the Woods.⠀ Another completed illustration created in @procreate I loved painting those tree trunks. I found it immensely satisfying. Interestingly, it was harder to paint this owl than the last. I believed it was going to be the opposite since drawing the owl in flight was much more difficult than drawing this one. It’s strange how things turn out sometimes. Still, I’m pleased with the results and a print of this is available in my @Etsy shop https://buff.ly/32cypSn (link also in my Instagram bio)⠀ ⠀

Painting Leaves.⠀ One of the elements I’ve been enjoying painting most during my current illustration is the leaves as well as the tree branches. I’ve been going for a stylised look with these elements that will complement the exaggerated colours of the owl. I’m continuing on with the 6B pencil tool in @procreate to keep the overall look of the illustration consistent. Watch this space for the full illustration reveal.⠀ ⠀

Silhouette and colours for my next Tawny Owl Illustration.⠀ I quite like the layout for this illustration so I decided to share the silhouette again. I’m looking forward to creating an illustration with a few more elements than the last, mainly those tree trunks.⠀ ⠀

Tawny Owl Details.⠀ Whilst I’m working on my next illustration I figured I’d give you a more focused look at the Tawny Owl from my last illustration. Created in @procreate, the textured effect is achieved by colouring in the 6B Pencil sketch brush. I decided on a strict colour palette and then layered those colours over each other to create a consistent look throughout. I always enjoy exaggerating colours slightly which pulls the piece away from being too realistic and the fun use of colour keeps me interested in the work. It’s important to enjoy your artwork as an artist. If I don’t enjoy what I’m creating, I tend to lose enthusiasm for it. What are your thoughts on making sure you enjoy your work? doesn’t necessarily have to be art.⠀ ⠀

Tawny Owl in Flight⠀ Here we go, my tawny owl illustration completed using @procreate pencil tools. I’m really happy with the texture the pencil tools give my illustration and I definitely intend to experiment with it more. I have two more Tawny Owl illustrations planned so watch this space for progress.⠀ ⠀
