Just some of the many owls created during this years silkpainting at Center Parcs !
I was originally inspired by a tile design from a visit to the V+A Museum in London and found it worked really well as a silkpainting design. It has quite a lot of outlining to do but easy to paint and fun for me to see it reproduced in so many different colour ways. Owls have been a very popular design motif and I find myself looking for variations on this theme, the little Roman Owl coin was found on the internet . Pottery decoration is also worth a look at for birds and animal designs
