Here is another cute October Halloween painting. I did this awhile back and I want to share with you in celebration of all things cute Halloween series of illustrative artwork. Again, this one I bring out every year. This one is titled “Owl Boy”. I really like the stenciled background I chose, which is a cheesecloth pattern that suits the Halloween theme.
“Owl Boy” is all ready for trick or treating in his black owl costume and pumpkin pail in hand. I did not want to take away from the Owl mask costume, which had big owl eyes. And the boy had a simple face with a blissful smile. Doing this draws my eyes up to the owl mask, like it was really an owl dressed up as a boy, hence the title of my painting, “Owl Boy”.
Acrylic paint colors I used are, orange, green, purple, cobalt blue, black, and white. Sometimes, I purposely add criss-crossed scratched marks with my pencil to add some roughness to add texture on the surface of my canvas on side of my owl boy character.
Tip: You can paint sides of canvas black to frame your painting.
