Birkett the Great Horned Owl in Pastels

2017-10-07_07-42-28.jpgI’ve taken numerous photos of this particular owl at Suffolk Owl Sanctuary over the past couple of years – he is such a character! One of these photos, taken earlier this year, is the reference for my latest pastel drawing that I started last weekend at a workshop, and finished last night.

I used a mix of Conté crayons and pastels on Pastelmat paper.
