Barn Owl number 3 complete

"Barn Owl II"
Size approx 10.5" x 14"
Finally got this one complete today. starting another drawing in the middle of working on this one has made it feel like this drawing has taken an age to get complete, but we're there now.

This will be mounted and framed ready for the RHS Harlow Carr Summer Exhibition at the end of the month. Just a couple more to get done before then!

Wonderful. I have really enjoyed this WIP. The owls chest looks so soft and downy. The detail in the feathers is lovely.

Good luck Nolon in the exhibition.

Thanks Dors. With this one being the third Barn Owl (only 1 behind the number of Hares i've drawn recently), i've had quite a bit of practice now!

The 'downy' chest feathers were done in a similar way to the backgrounds, applied using tissue, but this time rubbed in HB scribbles - quick but effective!

What a handsome owl. You've done an excellent job.
