UK Tawny Owl


It’s a while since I’ve done an owls and by chance it was bird of the week over at facebook’s ‘paint colorful birds for fun’.     I chose a tawny one this time.

This was done in my sketchbook with Cotman pan paints.  Not my usual kit but it worked pretty well.

Intermediate steps below.

Body feathers are always tricky for me.   Still a way to go before I’m satisfied with these.

And the original photograph.

  1. I am mad about birds, feathers nests so this painting really speaks to me. It is wonderful!
    I love the way your paint quality ebbs and flows.
    Thanks for visiting my blog and I have answered your question on it.

  3. Much thanks Julie. I periodically do pictures of owls to see whether there's any progress or not. Thankfully there is but there's a long path ahead too.
