Fantastic owl artwork

Inspired by the pictures in the story 'Owl Babies' we created our own etchings.

Firstly we coloured the entire sheet of paper with different wax crayons, before painting over with thick black powder paint.  We had to be patient while it dried, but then we scratched off the paint to reveal the light colours below.

Not only are the pictures great to look at, they also illustrate facts that we have learnt about barn owls.

The barn owl's long feet can reach in to the grass to catch it's prey

The barn owl has broad wings to help it glide.

This etching shows the unique heart shaped face of a barn owl.
Please let us know what you think!
