Barn Owl study, coloured pencil on Strathmore Smooth.

It’s been one of those typical grey, wet and miserable December days, one of those days where inspiration can be difficult to come by: so what better time to have a go at doing a small study on a classic, a Barn Owl? It has been a while since I’ve done a Barn Owl, and even longer since I’ve seen one unfortunately. This little one I think has a certain character to it, with it’s curious expression and craning neck, slightly ruffled feathers – perhaps its as wet as it has been today? Despite the small size of this piece, I think I managed to get a decent amount of detail on it, but I try hard to get more in. Next time perhaps.
