4x7 watercolor and ink (Micron 01 pen) sketched on 140 lb paper, a portion of a sheet that I used behind larger works. The snowy owl had only one wing as his right one was injured and removed; he lived in a wildlife sanctuary and has passed now. I sketched around the paint marks then filled in empty spaces with other colors, and even gave him a log behind and in front. This was featured on WetCanvas watermedia forum December challenge as hosted by Virginie in Canada.
