Owl, moss, and snow drawing

Owl #53
Owl on moss cliffs

Owl 53 is another owl found in Iceland, the Short-eared Owl. I’ve drawn this one sitting on moss covered cliffs with falling snow. Liking the subtle variations of greens in this one.

You can find single cards and card sets in my shop.

This has been on my list to draw for a while now and I finally got around to it. It was a fun challenge figuring out how to portray and differentiate each owl. Not sure I can pick a favorite. I’m particularly happy with the great grey, screech, and northern hawk owl.

Short-eared Owl roost

Owl #28
Owls cartoon illustration

This illustration is based on the Short-eared Owl. At certain times of the year they will roost together in groups, sometimes as large as a couple hundred owls. So here they are among the grassy tussocks as the sun sets. These owls are mostly diurnal, meaning they are active in the day, so I suppose they are just settling down to sleep.
