 :heeha: Oh wow, Nolan. This owl is magnificent.  :smitten: I want to take this lesson in the very near future. I have a few different lessons started in various mediums.  ::)  I must focus and finish before starting anymore .... But oh the temptation to draw this owl.  ^-^

Thanks, Nolan.  This is a really fun class.  I love owls and your instruction made it so easy to do this one.  Love doing the blurred background.


A neighbor saw it and loved it so I am going to make the Hawaiian owl for him as that is his family's aumakua (Hawaiian word for a protective spirit). It looks very different than this one.  the Hawaiian word for owl is pueo.  I will post it when I get done.

Thanks, Steve.  Owls have great eyes!

I just printed the template for the Hawaiian owl (pueo).  Hope to do it today.

One of my very favorite creatures, Mea. You portrayed Mr. Owl very well, indeed.  :)

Thanks, Cyril.  I agree that it is better than most of my drawings.  I am half way done with the Hawaiian owl and hope to post it tomorrow.

Thanks, John, I love owls, too.

Thanks, Val.  Looking forward to seeing yours.  It's a fun class.
