Watercolor Wednesday: Sneak Peak Owl

This is a larger watercolor that will be part of my Spring Open Studio paintings.
Artist Info: This was painted with washy thick color that was applied to dry paper. Then clear water was overlaid to run the colors together.
The darks were made with ivory black plus sap green, or ivory black plus burnt sienna and/minus some cobalt blue. The midtones were yellow ochre and burnt sienna. The lights were yellow ochre and cobalt blue alone or in combination. The eyes were ivory black and burnt sienna around cad yellow and scarlet red. The pupil was ivory black and then burnt sienna. Some of the orange and yellow was then added into the feathers to repeat the color.
