A Little Owl (Athene noctua) Sketch & Fairy Dog on a Sunflower Website Update...



Here is a sketch of a Little Owl (Athene noctua).  This is the favored owl of the Greek goddess Athena, also known as Minerva by the Romans.  I am going to have this little owl nestled on Athena's shoulder for one of my upcoming paintings.  Thanks to Paul Sawford for letting me use his amazing photo as reference...


I am also participating in Sunday Sketches.  To view more Sunday Sketches, please visit:
