burrowing owl watercolor

:) This little owl is a Burrowig owl, I really liked the straight on gaze that this little guy was giving the camera. I tried to capture that gaze here in my painting. I'm pretty pleased with how this turned out.

This was done in watercolor pencil and pen and ink drawingThis was done in my folded watercolor sketchbook (5x7") 140# paper with Albrecht durer watercolor pencils from a photograph.

Thanks for looking!
Cheers! SB

Nice! Love owls too. He's cute, he looks very serious and a little disappointed!

His "look" is perfect - owls have a way of looking at you so directly.

I love the color! I'm not quite ready to dive into the color pool. Thanks for taking the plunge.

He almost looks a little bewildered. Could he have been wondering why someone had an interest in him? Turned out very nice.

This is a great drawing/painting. I enjoyed seeing it. Plus that raccoon is adorable! I've only make it through a few, but I'll be back.
