Day 27 Owl

While creating this from the day’s lesson, I didn’t know how it was to turn out, but it is definitely one cute holiday owl!

I was a little worried when reading about owls because I thought I got the feet wrong. Owls are zygodactyl, which means they have two toes forward and two toes back. My owl has three toes forward. But guess what? An own can move one of its toes forward and back, so this owl is showing three toes, as could happen, according to Fun Facts About Owls from Audubon.

I’ve more to do with this image, but it is just to cute not to share now 🙂


The Feathers

Create a feather effect with the dry gouache brush. Just pull in the direction of the feathers.
