Owls

Wednesday, July 6th 2016

Today at Foxglove Glennis ran an Artful Owls session. The idea of this was to look closely at what makes up an Owl and concentrate on the specific details, rather than the Owl as a whole, as painting this can seem a daunting task. People got in touch with their arty side, experimenting with a variety of media, including pastels, watercolours, oils and prints.

Even those who claimed to be completely unable to draw produced some rather nice masterpieces- here are some of them, and the specimens from which they gained their inspiration.  Here are some eyes…

And some feathers…

Whilst out and about afterwards, Jenny took this lovely picture of a Water Vole.

I think it was looking for its apples, which it didn’t find- we had decided to ration them a little as they were getting rather greedy!

Like every Wednesday it was also Moth day at Foxglove. Some nice ones caught were this Pebble Prominent and this Peppered Moth 

This Ringlet Butterfly was also spotted whilst out and about.

Thanks go to Glennis for running the session today. It was very much enjoyed.
