I have a new tradition of drawing Christmas Cards every year. I will have a couple owls this year. This is the first, a simple and fun Snowy Owl and falling snow.
Wow, we’ve hit number 20! This Owl is on a foggy and rocky island, with a lighthouse and the sea behind.
This one was fun to paint, as are most with fun different weather. Green is tricky, it is tough to use most times. This wasn’t too bad though, i think it helped to limit the green area and have different depths.
Prints are in the shop here: Foggy Island Print
Speaking of the shop, I just got some postcards made! They are really fun, i think the illustrations suit the postcard format well. So far I have a set of Snowy Owl postcards available.
My twelfth owl is based on a Northern Hawk Owl. They seem to enjoy sitting at the top of pines like this. It seems kind of awkward, but I guess they like it.
This one went through quite a drastic change when I was almost finished, with the addition of the fog, which was not part of my original plan. Pretty happy with how it turned out though. I think weather always adds a nice element of texture and atmosphere.
