A Great Horned Owl up in the evergreens. And under a clear sky, a snowy landscape with cottages lit up for Christmas. Hope you all have a nice holiday season!
Owl and Frost
watercolor and ink
Prints available here
Owl 49 is a flying Barn owl, gliding over frosty Winter fields. Very pleased with how the soft colors and whites turned out in this one. One of my personal favorites that will be going into my 2016 calendar.
A revised drawing of Owl #7. A Great Gray Owl sitting on a barbed wire fence, and a simple, barren snowy landscape. I liked the original concept and simplicity of this one, but it just needed to be redrawn as my style has evolved and I’ve become more practiced at drawing owls.
Owl and Stone Farmhouse
A cozy illustration for the holidays. This is the last of 4 new holiday card designs I drew for this year. A Great Horned Owl in a wintery landscape with a stone wall and a stone farmhouse.
Snowy Owl and Red Winter Sun
A snowy Winter landscape with bare deciduous trees, a flying Snowy Owl, and a large red sun. Possible Christmas card for this year?
This is my other Christmas card for this year. A Barn Owl flying over little houses decorated with Christmas lights. Barn Owls tend to remind me of Christmas, so I’ve had a cozy little scene like this in my head for a while. I love the colorful old Christmas lights so I had to paint those in as well.
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.
