Yesterday on WordPress I found this lovely picture of an owl 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.

“Sketch”
