Pen and ink sketch
This is a sketch I did during a drawing workshop at the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum. The instructor brought out a number of animals so we could get used to trying to draw from life, while that life was moving around, trying to jump off the table and turning its head at just the wrong moment! The barn owl was pretty quiet and stood still for the most part, but she kept looking up at the windows in a wistful way. I know she would have been happier flying free, but I appreciated the chance to see and draw her up close!
