Notice I’m a little heavy on the “Feathers” lately, and light on the “Folly”. There’s certainly not an absence of “folly” in the news, and as we get closer to the election, there’s certainly going to be plenty of fodder for my blog in the coming weeks. For now though…nice to focus on the feathers.
Another drawing, another bird I don’t have photos of. I’ve seen Barn Owls on occasion here, including a couple of excellent looks for very cooperative birds. But of course, those 2 occasions where times where I didn’t have my camera with me! Beautiful, beautiful birds, and one I wanted to draw for a while. However, I kept delaying, because the plumage on these guys is so variable and detailed. There’s no doubt that this is the drawing that took me the longest to finish (better part of 5 hours).
