I decided on the Barn owl sketch with him/her looking more at the front then ending up going with another bird profile. Thought a blue background would work with the yellow and brown colours in the bird.
A close up of the background. I found a new favourite brush in Painter. The Particle Spring Soft Blender. I had no idea what it did and to tell the truth, still have no idea lol But I like the effect it produces. I should probably go do some research on the brush just in case someone asks.
