Owl Pyrography

I’ve had a great week for finishing creative projects, and I am especially pleased to have completed this one! I started this pyrography quite a while ago, and have worked on it around a variety of other projects.

‘Cobweb’ the Barn Owl

I created this using a mix of conté crayons and soft pastels on 10x12" black sugar paper. Although this has been drawn on black sugar paper, I have blended a layer of black pastel in the background which I hope will protect the paper against fading.

Owl, Pyrography

This week I started a new pyrography challenge, working on a 37x37cm plywood sheet, with the aim of reproducing a photograph of an owl I took at Suffolk Owl Sanctuary in August this year (shown in one of the photos).   More pictures will be uploaded as it progresses!
