A christmas present for my aunt.
Not completely happy with this, the photograph didn't do it any justice either!

The way it is drawn here makes it look like the owl is caught in a blizzard or some sort of high wind. I would have loved perhaps to see specks of snow on the grass, which would add detail, while giving a picture another story to go with, especially considering the time of year it was made for.

All in all, well done and an interesting take on the subject!
