Little Owl – Illustration in Gouache

Lovely Owl Card By Ashley Wolff

I love owls.  I think they are my favourite animals.  So I loooked at some owls on the web and found this beautiful “Small Owl”


This isn’t my photo.  I tracked the photo down to a number of websites but, unfortunately, couldn’t find the author.


So this is my process of illustrating this owl.





“Light Shadows and Eye Colour”


“Head Plumage”



And the finished illustration…
