Peace Love & Joy Owl

Peace Love Joy Holiday Owl by Regina Lord
(print available in my shop)

I took a little detour from the bird ornaments to make some holiday art. This little owl has been popping into my head for a while. I want to paint him again, but without the scarf and maybe with different words or no words at all, not sure.

inktense pencils

I used my new Derwent Inktense pencils on the feathers of the owl. They work like watercolor pencils, but become much brighter when water is added. They also become permanent when dry. I know I’ll be having lots of fun with them.

I made two more holiday pieces, but they are not photographed yet. I will share them tomorrow.

    Watch out for those Derwent Inktense pencils; they may fade terrible over time. Roz M. Stendahl over at has done some excellent tests of Derwent products and found them to not be light-fast over time. Caran D’Arche products are more light-fast in my experience.

    But then again, here’s a humorous description of people ignoring Roz’s excellent advice:

    Sorry, I don’t know how to make the links active…
