Beautiful Snowy Owl--Just Inklined

I love snow scenes, although I don't necessarily love snow LOL.  Just Inklined has a new image that really grabbed me and I had to have it as soon as I saw it and had to color it as soon as I had it....Here is Snowy Owl:

I hope I did this majestic bird justice.  I wanted to keep the image as natural looking as possible so colored with copics and kept mostly neutral whites, beige, blue and silver. 

I added a little green for the ever green trees but kept it to a minimum as in the tree lines where this gorgeous bird resides the snow is heavy which requires his white feathers.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to stop by the Justlined.com shop to see the rest of the beautiful Christmas inages and scenes that would make the most beautiful cards or even framed works and because they are digital you could so easily do it!!!

Not sure I like the sun I tried to make look like it was over cast with the clouds and haze, so it may still get covered with a beautiful flower spray of some sort, we'll see.

No no nooooooo...I LOVE the sun. I swear...it's perfect! This cardis stunning, Cathy! The snow looks so real...makes me feel cold (or maybe I should put on my slippers! hehehe!) But the sun adds a touch of color...and it looks so realistic...kinda hiding behind the clouds! I love it, darlin'!! Hugs. Pat Frank
