Jumping Owl Ballerina

On this #TutuTuesday we have the colour rendering from last week’s sketch of an owl inspired ballet costume and tutu design.  The browns in this costume draw from the Great Horned Owl. Did you know owls hunt mostly at night? They can see in the dark and watch from high perch. Then they swoop down to capture their prey.

There’s so many different feather patterns just among owls. Living in Whistler, couldn’t help but draw the snowy owl too. Here it is on our Instagram where you can follow Big Top Ballet studio life and sketches in progress.

Creative theme for this week at Big Top Ballet has been Owls. As luck would have it, we even spotted a baby owl on one of our walks through Whistler this past weekend which you can peek on our instagram! The above sketch for this week’s #tututuesday was a result of this natural inspiration from our surroundings. Come back next week and see how this concept evolves into full rendered colour.
