Yesterday,  Lady Fantasque (a friend of mine who is an ex-Art teacher) published an easy method to draw an owl. I asked her for the permission to translate her article into English for my dear pupils and visitors. Here is what she writes :


Here is an easy method to draw* an owl. You only need to know how to draw a circle and curved lines* with a pair of compasses*.

Be careful: the body must be twice (= 2x) as high as the height* of the head

(so if the head is 3 cm high, the body must be 6 cm high).


Then, you can colour your drawing, use it to cut into paper or fabric*, or embroider* it onto a cushion*.




Vocabulary : draw = dessiner ; curved lines = lignes courbes ; a pair of compasses = un compas ; height = hauteur ; fabric = tissu ; embroider = broder ; a cushion (prononcer : kousheun) = coussin.

Thank you very much. Now, it's too easy to draw an owl. And, I can say "broder" and "tissu" in english. I was in the dark (is it correct ?) about fabric and embroider ... .
