Little Owl


Had fun losing hours painting the feathers in this little owl design. What a delight to sit and paint. Wish I had more time to devote to it. It was a great diversion to spend time in Debbie Thompson Wilson's illumination class. I am so grateful for her expertise. Design is 2x2 on Arches 140 lb. HP paper.

How I would love to do an illumination class, your owl is magnificent.

Many thanks Valerie. Illumination class is something I look forward to every year. It feels very luxurious to add tiny elements of gold to a watercolour painting.

Your little owl is lovely Heather! 2x2?!! Such fine detail. It must be very meditative for you. :)

Hi Jane,

It is a very meditative process. I want to make more time for it. Thanks for the kind words!
