"Florian" the Tawny owl, new studies

I spent several hours in Nymphenburg park hoping to make a proper watercolour study of "Florian" the only Tawny owl I didn`t manage to paint in colour yet. The owl was sitting outside his hole on a branch, enjoying the sunlight, until few Jays arrived screaming around and forced him to disappear in his hole..This is what I managed to get up to this point..

Portrait sketches

After two months I found the time to join the portrait group with our model posing for 2, 5, 10, 15 and 20 mintutes. I use to be quick when working outdoors but I don`t have to look at the clock as in this case. Attached,the images I managed to get within 2 hours in total.Many thanks to Andreas for organizing this event and Anastasia our model!

Blackbird singing life study

The weather is still cold, rainy and the wind didn`t allow any walk outdoors, but sometimes I just have to look out of my window to find motives to draw., Just like today,.. I heard first the blackbird singing and then I spotted the bird sitting on the top of a tree just opposite of my window. Using my scope I managed to do this study before the bird flew away..Bic pen
