So for today's painting I thought I'd post a quick watercolour sketch I did last year of an Eagle Owl's eyes and funnily enough it's a year to the day that I did it - weird eh?
|Owl Eyes - painted July 7th 2011 from a gorgeous photo on PMP by Angeline Rijkeboer|
by Sharon Whitley the Rambling Artist
These beautiful birds have the most amazing hypnotic orange eyes and it was a real thrill to get so close and be able to stroke it's soft feathers - what a treat - much better than building a fence! I was surprised how big it was already at only 15 weeks. Here is one of the brilliant photos that Gary took today - you will see many more on his Walks and Wildlife blog here.
A year on, I hope to paint a better version of this magnificent bird so wish me luck and watch this space!
