I found this blog with owls painted on rocks and thought I would give it a try…

and see if I could make the owls look like owls.

I used black and brown Sharpies to freehand the design and then covered them with a thin coat of Mod Podge to protect the design.

I even painted a peacock feather on a rock…it didn’t show up too well because it was a dark rock, but still pretty cool!
