Worried Owl #3
During Covid lockdown I found that for some reason I only wanted to paint owls, not a subject I have painted before. Maybe it’s their resemblance to a human face and the symbolism of wisdom? Interestingly they mostly ended up having a worried expression that I’m sure comes from the experience of lockdown and the pandemic.
Although I consider this one overworked I like the uncertain expression and there are some nice random effects using salt with the ink wash.
