Owl in Acrylic and Ballpoint

I hope all of you had a great holiday!  It seems that the free Calendar coloring pages are a hit for downloading the last few days.  I’m so glad I made them.

Over the long weekend, I created my Owl friend in acrylic paint and ballpoint.  He was originally a coloring page, and I finally brought him to life on a 140 lb watercolor sheet.  He’s free to download, print, and enjoy!

I had a great time with this one, as usual.  I even recorded the process for a slideshow, soon to be posted.  I had the idea for the design and first created it for a chapbook for Exquisite Books is black and white.  I decided to come back to it with color.

I started with a watercolor paper, which is very thick.  The basic structure was sketched out, painted, and then I went over the lines and added detail with silver and gold gel ink.  The painting has the colors of the rainbow, including the embellishment of red prismacolor pencil at the bottom and around the sun at the top.

November and December 2017 Free Calendar Coloring Pages

The calendar coloring pages are all ready for printing and coloring!  I just spent the last month cranking these out, and it was an amazingly exciting process.  I’m really happy to be done with them, though.   The inspiration for November, “Frost Moon” came from “California Dreamin'” and remembering the quiet beauty of tiny, chirpy birds on the bushes– in this case, dormant roses.

The inspiration for December,”Long Nights Moon” came from the landscape and environment happening right now in Northwest Washington.  The air is cold and dry, the sky is crystal clear, and the full moon is pulsing with electricity.  We don’t get many clear nights in the winter, so when we do it’s really special.

September and October 2017 Calendar Coloring Pages

September and October are the months of harvest and stocking for the coming cold months.  People and animals fatten on the abundant vegetation of the summer, and for cultures which traditionally depend on animals for protein needs, early fall is time for hunting.  Hence the month names for September and October.
