The Daily Hoot

I've been drawing birds quite a lot recently - not realistic but decorative ones - and somehow that became this portrait gallery, complete with owl enjoying a little drink and the daily paper. I started out by painting the lines with black acrylic, then coloring with watercolor. The lines looked very clunky and overly prominent as I was painting them, but with the color they seem just fine. I do think a painted line gives more energy than a line drawn with pen and even a line drawn with brush and ink.
