This week’s Reader Art of the Week comes from Jessica, 11.
Here it is:
This nature scene really caught my eye and I love the vibrant birds. I had to know more about the artist so I contacted Jessica and asked her a few questions.
Q. What did you use to create this?
Jessica: I used acrylic paint and a pencil to draw out my lines.
Q. What inspired you to choose this setting?
Jessica: I chose this setting because it suited a Christmas theme since this was for a contest. I also love all kinds of nature from the birds and the bees, and the mountains and the trees.
Q. Were you a born artist or is this a skill you’ve been practising for years?
Jessica: I believe it is a talent I was born with, but I only became interested in it when I was nine years old. I also have never taken an art class before.
Awesome job, Jessica!
Send me your art masterpiece and you may be featured on the OWL blog, too!
Awesome job, Jessica! I really like how the detail in the background adds to the painting.
I just figured out that Craig is the senior editor of my favourite mag, (besides OWL) The Sportsnet magazines…. OMG
That is amazing, Jessica! It’s so detailed!
