DESCRIPTION: The Eurasian eagle-owl (Bubo bubo) is a species of eagle-owl (Strigiformes). One of the most widespread kind of owls. They live in North Africa, and in Europe and Asia. This kind is one of the largest in the world .The upper parts may be brown-black to tawny-buff to pale creamy gray, typically showing dense freckling on the forehead and crown, stripes on the nape, sides and back of the neck, and dark splotches on the pale ground colour of the back, mantle and scapulars. A narrow buff band, freckled with brown or buff, often runs up from the base of the bill, above the inner part of the eye and along the inner edge of the black-brown ear tufts.

The Owl Can fly with very high speeds but enough maneuverable for hunting in the dense crowns of trees.

I chose OWL because I believe it is one of the most beautiful birds living on the territory of my country. In this work I wanted to reveal as much as possible all my skills with regards to bring the real image. The work has done with pencils of different softness, on a sheet of A4 paper. The time of drawing is more than 60 hours.
