I spend a morning in the zoo with my daughter yesterday and couldn`t expect to be able to sketch something, since children don`t have the patience to stay in a place longer. This study is definitely an exception..
This is the Tawny owl life study from today morning. Never seen this individual before, a pretty cooperative fellow! Painted using gouache colours, a solely brush study without preliminary pencil drawing
It was a beautiful autumn day today, and couldn`t miss the chance to visit Schloss Nymphenburg park in Munich looking after the tawny owls.Since I couldn`t spot any other I went back to the well known "Kasimir" , and managed to complete a study. It sounds unbelievable but it is the tenth study from the same bird I did so far! Gouache colours on water colour paper
I went back to Nymphenburg Palace with its gorgeous park hoping to spot once again an other Tawny owl, and I didn`t regret it. Beside this study I was able to finish, I saw four different individuals enjoy the sun in their daytime roost. I promised myself to go back soon to pa Tawny owl at daytime roost, life study, Gouache colours int all of them from life.

A Bald eagle study at Wildpark once again, this time of an immature bird. I`m not particularly pleased with this study,because the light conditions didn`t allow me to show form and tones I`d love to have.
