Caree and I discussed it and I've been allocated the word 'Brown', whilst Caree is doing 'Owl'. If any of our other Brown Owls out there would like to do a letter that would be great - just leave me a message over the next couple of days. *Just an update: Thanks to Georgie who has offered to the letter 'W'.
I've started with mixed media for the first letter. I began by putting down collaged newspaper on the canvas.
I then used watercolour paint for the background, outlined the letter in oil pastels, and then used my sewing machine to go around the letter.
Here's a close up of the detail. Still need to put an owl on there somewhere.
I guess I'm trying to show the alternative nature and talents of the Brown Owls. I think I will do a lino print for the next letter.
