I joined the Arthouse Sketchbook Project late last year – all of a few weeks ago (saying “last year” makes it sound so long ago!). We have various themes to choose from and I’ve chosen Why did the owl make everyone laugh?.
This first owl is a Tawny Frogmouth, an Australasian ‘owl’, famous for pretending to be tree branches or squawking with their big yellow mouths open to scare intruders away. I love them. They have so much character and attitude! Their chicks are totally adorable too, all you can see are fluffy feathers, big black eyes and huge sharp beaks!
