Yet more owls

Owl face

I think owls are incredible in the silence of their flight. There’s no warning at all when they fly over, you either are looking in the right place or you’re not. We found a dead owl in the front room just before we moved in here. It must have come down the chimney and been trapped. It was so light and delicate, with such amazing plumage that I’ve still got a clear kind of visual and physical memory of it.

I’ve turned the owl face into a card as it works really well as one. The owls in flight are my own indulgence. I’ve used a mixture of watercolour and pastels on all three. Mainly because that was what was to hand. I’d really like to try in oils or acrylics but that will have to wait.
