SNOWY OWL VISITS VANCOUVER - 14 x 18 Available
It's done!! This is one of the largest drawings I have done in a long time and let me tell you, the detail on his chest nearly drove me crazy. I am really pleased with the drawing; I love the way the grasses and weeds wind around him. I really worked to get some texture as well, with burnishing softness for the owl and leaving the tooth of the paper for the log and weeds.
My original plan was to call this Miss Snowy Owl visits Vancouver as my research gave me the impression that my owl was a young female but as I looked into it more I find that this may also be an immature male. So hence the name "Snowy Owl visits Vancouver". Either way it is an amazing sight to see these birds. We went for a second visit on the weekend arriving just at sunrise (yes, you read that correctly, sunrise). It was a lovely cold, crisp, morning and the owls although dwindling in number were a wonderful sight to see.
