"Hoot Owl"

This week for 
I thought I'd show you my drawing of an owl, or as I would have called it when I was a child, a 
"Hoot Owl." 



I originally started to sketch an owl because I wanted to have a pattern to use for a little stuffed owl.
After using some of my watercolor pencils I wanted to blend, but with out water so I tried my Pan Pastels.


I thought the purples and the golden tones were kind of fun, and I really liked the 
way the Pan Pastels blended my owl. 


Maybe I should have put some little feet on my hoot owl, what do you think? 



Thanks for dropping by to take a peek at my entry. 
Please drop by PPF to see all the other fun and beautiful art! 

Have a great weekend! 

Becca

Owls are very 'in' this year. I see them in all of the stores on shirts, earring holders, dishware, wall art, stuffed animals... They are just da bomb right now! Yours is perfect!!

No, do not need feet, his eyes are traveling towards us.Saludos

This owl is VERY sweet, Becca--looks like he could be a Japanese cartoon character! :o) Great choice of colors... and aren't those pan pastels fun?! Happy Weekend ((HUGS))

Janelle said...

Your little owl is really cute. I love the purple and gold together.

I still call them "Hoot Owls". The other night I was walking my dog and there were two owls hooting back and forth at each other. It was one of those memorable walks...just a lovely evening with the moon bright and the weather cool and clean. Aaaah.

I love your sweet little owl Becca, especially his eyes, and the pastels softened him so prettily. I would say he needs some feet. Perhaps with Tennis shoes? Or maybe flip flops since you live in warm climate. Or maybe his little talon feet coming forward like he is sitting, but I would have no idea how to draw that. : )

cute little dreamy-eyed critter.

I love your "Hoot Owl", and don't you like Pan Pastels? When we were in Death Valley I heard "Hoot Owls" for the first time, two of them talking to each other, it was magical.

Muddy Boot Dreams said...

Becca, you are a incredible artist, and I love your work. And you know what else draws me in so much, the shots of the art supplies, and your materials that you take. They are so eyecatching, and colorful, I just love them.

Hi Becca. Your Hoot Owl is just great and to me it would make a great wooden clock for the kitchen. I love it! give it to me. tee hee. Just joshing. What are pan pastels? I will have to go look it up but they look great. Wonderful job, enjoy your weekend and Happy PPF!

EVA said...

Your owl is fabulous!! I love the colours you chose and those pan pastels look very cool.

I think feet and sitting on a branch would be a very nice addition to finish him off.

Robin Panzer Art said...

He's adorable! I am a fan of feet and a branch so he isn't floating but he's super cute regardless! ~Happy Paint Party Friday! #61 Robin Panzer Art Studio 33

Tracey Fletcher KIng said...

This is adorable... the pan pastels have provided such strong colour... have been looking at them in the art shop for ages and after seeing this thinking I may need to add them to my Christmas list ...as to the feet... maybe scan or photograph the image , then print it out and have a few practise goes on prints till you get what you like... it would be a shame to muck up such a great work xx

adorable

Zondra Art said...

You drew a beautiful owl! Great job dear!
Enjoy your weekend!

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

He's great...and do I see a bit of lavender in your art? I love it! ♥

Lesley said...

I vote no feet....just a branch for him to rest his tired bottom! :)

Carola Bartz said...

Such a cute owl - I love to work with pan pastels as well, their colors are so vibrant.
This is my first time on your blog and while I'm writing this I'm listening to the beautiful music from your playlist and saw the fantastic video on Badlands National Park - brought back wonderful memories. Your photography is marvelous!!

Joni Nickrent said...

Owlsome work...love your big, bright-eyed friend!

Phoenix Peacock said...

love the earthly sunrise tones of this owl!!

iamrushmore said...

I've heard of pan pastels and don't really understand how you use them. Now that I've seen the luminescent colors you used I'm totally intrigued.

Leigh said...

Stunning! I adore owls :)

Rosie said...

How beautiful, Becca! I love the colours and those eyes are so fascinating! You are an excellent artist! Have a wonderful Sunday!

Geckostone said...

Hoo,hoo,hoo, he is soooooo cute! He looks fine without feet. A stuffed doll would be adorable too, or a nestling doll with babies! Excellent work, I love how you did the eyes! Deb

Catherine said...

Owls are my favorite bird. And this one is adorable!!

Nope... no feet required.

Have a happy week Becca!

Auroran Lauriel said...

Oh, she's lovely. I love the contour lines and the way you've drawn her eyes. That blending of color is beautiful--those pastels you show look like fun! I've never seen them before.
p.s. I'm really enjoying the music you have playing on your blog.

RainCityGirl said...

I love this owl. Wonderful!

Brianne said...

I think little feet would look good. Actually, talons on the owl; feet on the hoot owl. Every time I drop by I am enchanted and inspired. I adore the sound of rain and the rain chains today. And, being introduced to the most whimsical Zetti Syle art. I am going to put that in my play "basket." Peace.
