Eye’s of a Predator-watercolor



I Started with the Owl, and then decided to make this long piece of scrap board a strip of predator eyes. It’s total measurement is 1 1/2″ x 8″ and was done in watercolors and pen. The subjects are the wolf, lynx (bobcat) and an owl, all with gorgeous eyes.

I hope you try something similar to this, it’s fun and fast. Some other ideas you might try are leaves, flowers or anything in a set, but start off simple.

Enjoy, get a set of school watercolors and give it a try!

  2. Maybe fast for you…these are incredible. It’s not just that I have a thing about eyes, it’s just that they’re so realistic.

    I really like the way you’ve displayed them alongside each other like this and the black frame makes stand out even more – really effective.

      The eyes say everything… lies, truth, love, hate, one of my favorite parts of the body.

      Hey Sis, some are new and the elephant was sold really quick (thanks to Jim).
      No problem helping you out, we had fun, and where else could I hear opera while painting!

  6. Hi, Small Town Dad. I picked up your site from June and have been meaning to comment, but wanted to read some before I did. I love this predator eye piece. I think it is pretty creative and your skill is fantastic. I also like the sequence you chose.

  8. Thanks for providing the link. I don’t work in watercolors so I find these especially impressive. And they’re so small. Very cool.
