Owl Studies

Here are some quick studies of owls, I didn’t have a lot of time this week as I succumbed to more dreary checkout work. For the painting I used a ruler to scratch off pastel pigments which seems to give my owl a rather interesting floral halo. I used my regulars, watercolour, ink, pastel and white pen for the barn owl painting.

I used a 4B grade pencil for this owl drawing, my comfort pencil!
