These free printable boho owl coloring pages for adults are the perfect way to de-stress and express yourself! The coloring sheets feature detailed designs with a variety of owls to color. A few of the pages feature quotations to color, too.
Owls are frequently considered symbols of wisdom, knowledge, and intuition. This symbolism is ancient – owls were associated with the Greek goddess Athena and the Egyptian owl god was a guardian of knowledge. The World of Birds has a fascinating page about the symbolism of owls in cultures from around the world if you want to know more about these fascinating birds.
The appearance of owls in your dreams or thoughts can be seen as a hint to listen to your intuition and inner voice. If you you’ve arrived at this page, perhaps your inner mind is telling you to trust and listen to yourself. I personally find that’s generally good advice!
I hope you enjoy these lovely owl coloring pages.

How to print and use printable coloring pages
Printing your own coloring pages is easy and far more cost-effective than purchasing coloring books.
You may be tempted to grab your cheapest copy paper and print out a stack of coloring pages. Please don’t do this!
For a more enjoyable, relaxing coloring experience, try printing your coloring pages on 32lb bright white paper. The paper is thick, bright, and smooth for rich colors. Your marker or pencil will glide across the page when you use this paper! You’ll never want to color in a “normal” coloring book with cheap, rough paper again after you try this dreamy paper.

If you have access to a laser printer, you can also print on watercolor paper or another art paper and paint your coloring pages or use your favorite mixed-media materials.
Your coloring tools can have a huge impact on your coloring experience. Let’s take a quick look at three popular options for adult coloring pages:
- Gel pens
- Colored pencils
There are lots of very inexpensive, and very disappointing, gel pen sets available. Purchasing one is so frustrating. That’s why I wrote an entire post on the best gel pens for coloring. These two are my top picks:
My favorite budget coloring markers are Crayola Supertips. They’re surprisingly affordable and fun for both adults and children. They’re fairly washable, available in a variety of colors, and you can even use them for hand lettering practice! One thing to note, though, is that the caps don’t always look exactly like the ink. This is a common marker problem I’ve noticed with other brands, too. I recommend swatching your markers out or testing them on a scrap sheet before coloring your page so you don’t have unpleasant surprises.
- Sold as 50/ST.
- Markers have tips that are smooth, not scratchy.
- Fine line markers with a versatile tip that draws thick or thin lines.
When it comes to colored pencils, nothing can top a set of Prismacolors. Prismacolor colored pencils are soft and creamy. They color easily and are great for blending.
- Soft, thick cores are perfect for shading and shadows
- Ultra-smooth, even color laydown
- Lightfast, richly saturated pigments
