A couple of posts ago I did a mini tutorial on how I draw my owl eyes. What I ended up with was a half finished owl eye on an A4 sheet of paper, so obviously, instead of continuing on and drawing the rest of the owl (I had just finished 5 owls) I decided to try something a bit different........and so began the Doodle Bird Panel.
It took me about 2 weeks and around 40 hours to complete and although at some stages I doubted I would ever get it finished, I really, really enjoyed doing it and can't wait to start another one (yes, I am a glutton for punishment) It is so packed full of details and patterns, that it never got boring and even now I still enjoy looking at it. Here is how it progressed.
I also really enjoyed adding some collage pieces into the design - something new for me.
And here is the finished image.
