Here is my latest effort, in coloured pencil on stonehenge paper.
Needs a background?????

Beautiful owl, I really like the feather detail around the eye and the pattern on the wing. I like the background as it is, there's a nice harmony to the piece. :)

I think this is lovely and delicate and it seems to be very much part of the bg. I would not change a thing.

Yeah, is very nice... you could eventually make the feathers more defined... about the background, i suggest to use a digital modification and see if it matches better what you want :)

Beautiful!! As for a background, I wonder if something a little darker would help bring out the white of the owl more, but it also looks good the way it is too.

Lovely. He would stand out more with a darker background, perhaps!

Love the detail. What pencils are you using? I use Prismacolor.

It's a lovely picture but I do think you spoiled it somewhat with your very dark initials and date (never date your work but, if you feel you must, put it on the back!) I encourage you make your signature (initials) more discreet, neat and horizontal.

It is a beautiful and elegant painting! No bg needed. Agree about the signature.
Beautiful, great job! :clap:

Great job IMHO a darker bg will make it more powerful
