I wanted to make an owl and a pussycat. In the end the owl became my main focus, as you will see. I used acrylic paint in complementary colours (green and red) alongside the pistachio nuts, which seemed perfect for the feathers of the 'elegant fowl'. My canvas was a re-purposed polystyrene pizza tray. The stick became the owl's beak and the lavender was sprinkled on the owl's eyes.
I hope you have enjoyed sailing along in my 'pea green boat' on this journey of recycling and discovery!
