Nymphenburg park-New studies

I`ve been in the Park once again yesterday, hoping to make a watercolour of the latest owl. I saw him sitting there but when he felt disturbed by an old man who came too close with his dog disappeared in his hole instantly. I decided then to paint the location. He use to sit on the tree to the right, down in the hole, just above the foliage. On my way back to the car I saw that an other owl was sitting on its preferred tree. Because I didn´t have enough time , I drew it with fineliners and coloured the image with watercolours
