“Great Horned Owl” is a free printable, gray scale instant download coloring page in JPG, PDF and PNG format. I created the drawing by hand with pen and ink, then I digitized the image and converted it to PDF, JPG and PNG formats. You can use the PNG if you want to resize the image. The JPG and PDF images are best for regular printing. JPGs and PNGs are also good for coloring digitally. It prints at 8 1/2 x 11, which is standard letter size, in landscape orientation.
How to Download
You’ll need two things to access this drawing. First, you’re going to need a printer. It’s a black and white image, so it doesn’t need to be a color printer. Second, you’ll need to have a program that will open PDF files, such as Adobe Acrobat Reader. Adobe Acrobat Reader is free to download, and they provide simple, readable directions showing you how to install it. If you don’t have Adobe Reader and don’t want to download it, or for some reason are unable to download it, you can set Google Chrome as your default PDF reader and open the file that way.
Paper Stock Choices
I prefer to print out my coloring pages on heavy card stock (at least 65 pounds) for best results. Pound, in this instance, refers to the thickness of the paper. A thicker paper is less likely to cause you issues when you’re coloring, and it will hold up better if you decide to use a liquid medium such as watercolor markers. However, use whatever paper works best for your project.
