this is another work in progress. Little owl, acrylic on canvas.
The smallest species of owl in the country I think. I’m adding holly branches to make it more seasonal.
The picture is about 6 inches by 4 inches. I want to work on the feathers and legs and feet.
Those eyes look like they are about to blink at me, and I can imagine the soft but strong feathers fluffed up against a north wind…
As the nursery rhyme goes. .
The North Wind shall blow,
And we shall have snow,
And what shall poor Robin do then?
He’ll sit in a barn,
And kerp himself warm,
And tuck his head under his wing
