Owlet, 1.5.2015, Moleskine 3.5" x 5.5"
There's a challenge going on over in the Artist's Journal Workshop group on Facebook. I just joined the group so I came in a bit late. The prompt for Day 4 was an animal. Since I drew all those animals for my granddaughter recently, I thought I'd just keep right on drawing them and send a few at a time to her.

Favorite part of this one: the blurry fluff on his breast. It really worked to soften the pencil there before adding the lines indicating the feathers. I tried not to make him look too intense or scary and would appreciate knowing if I succeeded!

  1. I have a great fondness for owl images, and live owls, too, of course! Your blogs, past & present are new to me, but I am enthralled. That goes for this sweet owlet, whose charming gaze is accented by what looks like delicate eyelashes on the left. Your granddaughter is so lucky.
