Owl Eyes - Sketch a Day

Using the Dover Publication “Animals,” a resource of copyright free, late 19th century images, makes for a varied source to sketch a day. The book is filled with thousands of engravings of just about every creature; creatures you can name, along with a few I am pretty sure never existed. However, even the most recognized animals appear questionable in appearance, like how animated an owl’s face can be. I am unsure whether they can really furrow their brows or display a look of surprise but on paper there’s no limit to how charming they can be.

    1. Thanks Gretchen – they have such great faces. Wonderful creatures to hang around your trees. šŸ™‚ Usually I see a pair of Great Horned Owls in the winter around here. Always exciting but I have never seen young.
