I love owls, I love drawing them and painting them. Although I haven’t done any lately my love was rekindled last week when I discovered a blog with the most amazing whimsical owls ever, very inspiring.
When I saw that the prompt for Illustration Friday was ‘wild’, I couldn’t help myself. Also I had to do a drawing for my book. Here is Barnaby with the key to the Wise Man’s secret library.
I had some other drawings in black ink and decided to test drive some inks I brought well over a year ago, lol! They are Sennelier – shellac based ink that is very transparent.
Oh, I love, love them. You can’t see it in the scan but the finish is like satin.
So thank you to Juliette for reminding me of how lovely owls are.
On Sundays from now on I am going to nominate the most inspiring blog I discover during the week and of course Juliette is this weeks. Her web site is (http://juliettecrane.com)
Here is one of her whimsy owls, she also does courses on how to paint and draw whimsy. Isn’t it gorgeous!
