“I flipped the face,” she told me—changed its angle from the tutorial in the book, using a field guide photo to help her. I love the work she’s doing with texture and shading here, diving in and trying things out. The speckles on the breast, the little squares on the wing.

  1. I love it 🙂 Her drawings always express so well the character of the animal she has created.

  2. Oh! What a lovely owl…that is an owl I would like to know. And yes, the textures are so satisfying to look at.
