SHORT EARED OWL: a digital study.

This is another digital study taken further by the inclusion of a coloured background. I began with a ‘pen’ drawing on a white ‘canvas’. First a monochrome sepia drawing on a slightly textured ‘paper’ then further developments were made by changing the pen colour. 

The background was created on a new layer by adding freely drawn transparent ‘washes’. Photoshop users will be familiar with the use of layers to make additions to digital photographs.

The source was a photograph I took on a visit to Mary Arden’s House at Wilnecote near Stratford Upon Avon.
