I painted this Tawny Owl in March 2015 and since then I’ve been inundated with requests to demonstrate how to paint it.
And specifically those glassy eyes that reflect to us what the owl is seeing.
Huge credit to Mark Hancox here who managed to capture this fantastic photo.
So in this tip video I wanted to show you how it is I capture the shape and shine of those owl eyes.
Hint: stop thinking you’re painting an eye, focus on the patterns within it instead!
Have you managed to take a photo capturing eye reflection like this? And did you manage to paint it? I’d love to hear about it.
If you do paint these eyes, I’d love it if you’d upload them to Instagram using the tag #AnnaMasonArt.
