Marvelous Moustaches - Mixed Media Monday


Hi everyone the theme this week took me in a completely different direction. I thought I would try to include an animal in my work instead of a person this time and I quite like how it turned out. Owls have always looked very distinguished to me so it wouldn't shock me if I saw one with a nicely groomed moustache and an monical!!! Tee hee, yes I'm mad!!! ;0)


I used lots of different materials for this one, acrylic paint, iridescant paints, my new pastel pencils and my coloured pens. As well as a few little stars glued on!

Hello to a fellow Aussie! I love your moustachioed owl!! It is such a clever painting. It is amazing to see how you have built up his feathers in such a way that they look fluffy enough to pluck! Superb work.

hi nico! very thanx! you are the 1 and only who has left any comment on my work so far so you are special! very! now it's my turn. i'm gonna choose this moustashed owl and what i really like is the yellow monical echoing eye. p.s. would you like to be my first (well after my mom, 'cause actually she's the first) follower. if do so, i promise, i will put you on my list as well. how is it in australia. have you ever hugged a koala? no or yes? that's all for now! it's almost midnight here in hungary and i'm too tired now. have to go to sleep. happy to meet you. see you later and good-bye!
