Bubo virginianus.

Hope you like it!
Sketch made ​​directly from the live model in watercolor and gouache on paper.  
2 hour sketch with the challenge of capturing the right light that changes every minute. The model is a Bubo virginianus.
I paint this owl at the local zoo. :)


  1. I love great horned owls ... and you've captured his glare so well. I almost expect him to snap his beak at me.

  2. I DO like it. You've captured his/her beauty and intensity. I love the toned background, too.

  3. How could it not be liked? It is striking and an inspiration. Bravo!

  4. Thanks Angela, Elva, Cynthia and Cranky Bird Studio
    It's very kind of you to say such nice things.

  5. Beautiful! and what patience you have!

  6. Thank you Maria and Studio at the Farm.
    Paula jaja yes! a lot of patience but the model helps because it stays very still for hours.

  7. This is just amazing and beautiful, love it!!
