Irwin, Baby Boobok Owlet. Watercolour.

This morning’s escapism adventure into my paint box took me to Australia! Not literally, but artistically, as Oz is the native country of the Boobok Owl – the subject of today’s painting.
Irwin (pictured) actually lives a few miles down the road and has never been to Australia in his life, but that is beside the point.
He is just the cutest little chap, especially when he bobs his head to focus on something! This was a relatively quick painting – not too much detail – I was more concerned with capturing his fluff and cheeky personality.
