I used thick watercolour paper and painted my Owl and Geese designs on both sides, using a mixture of watercolours, inks and gouache.
I wanted to create two complimentary designs in order to make full use of the tiny copper and glass frame with side opening...so I decided on a theme of Day and Night and settled on the Barn Owl to represent night, and the Geese on the wing to represent Day...which could in fact be dawn or sunset.
