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.
