owlsmall“Owl”, coffee on watercolor paper

I’m Irene. I enjoy:

  • Watercolor, because it’s beautiful and challenging.
  • Owls, because they are cute, nocturnal, and usually associated with coffee…
  • …which I also adore.

All these you will find on this site, under the collective name “Owlish Things”. All the photos, drawings, and other images on this site are made by me, unless stated otherwise.

  1. Hi Irene,
    I was delighted to find your site as I have just treated myself to a new box of 36 White Nights to add to my old and much loved 24 + box that saw me through college. So many people are horribly rude about them but they are very popular and affordable here in the UK but finding pigment information is so hard. It explained why I found some colours unsatisfactory and to ejecting the most fugitive and nastier mixes from my boxes. I have also filled my own pans with other single pigment artists paints, with no brand loyalty but a process of trial and error (and special offers !) to fill the gaps in ranges.
    Keep up the good work!
