"The artist...is also a born adventurer. His explorations, unlike those of a tourist, are rewarded by the discovery of beauty spots unmentioned in the guide books, and with tireless curiosity and an exceptional proneness to wonderment, he will come upon objects of remarkable interest overlooked or even shunned by more disciplined observers."

Another Owl

Continuing with the theme from the previous print - here we have another Owl. Different species this time though.

Colour 1 - a warm yellow ochre

Colour 2 - a darker tone of colour 1

Colour 3 - a cool grey, sorry about the quality of the photo. I hadn't realised it was this bad until after I printed the next colour and then it was too late to retake it.

Colour 4 - Light blue

Colour 5 - light green with some grey mixed in.

Colour 6 - Moving back to warmer tones with a light brown.

Colour 7 - the brown above with some purple grey added.

Colour 8 - darker tone of the previous colour.

Colour 9 - Another dark purple brown to add some texture into the rocks. One more final dark to go.
