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.⠀ ⠀

The Pencil Tool⠀ I really enjoy sketching with the pencil tool in pretty much any art software I’ve tried so I decided to try completing a coloured piece using only pencil tools. For this one, I used the 6B sketching pencil in @procreate on my iPad and I’m really enjoying those textured results. I can’t wait to show you the finished product.⠀ ⠀ ⠀

Tawny Owl Silouhette⠀ I was figuring out the colour palette for this Tawny Owl illustration and my boyfriend quite liked the simple silhouette so here it is 😋 If it was up to him the illustration would be staying this way, but don’t worry, there is more to come. Do you like this simple version?⠀ ⠀

Flying Owl Teaser.⠀ This is the last of the owl illustrations I’ll be creating. This one is much simpler than the other two, but there is so much going on with the owl itself I didn’t want to clutter the illustration with too many elements. So the next step is to get colour onto my tawny owl illustrations. I need to figure out how I’m going to paint them. Am I going to go with realism or a more stylised graphic colouring method? Hmmm, with some experimenting we will soon see.⠀ ⠀
