Moonlight Owl

For a long time, I thought of painting a Tawny Owl, but couldn’t come up with a suitable mood for the piece. Nothing felt right. That is, until I managed to capture a sense of its dark, liquid eyes. Once I’d perfected that (a process that was harder than you might think), then everything else fell into place to transform a Tawny Owl into a ‘MOONLIGHT OWL’.

There’s so much going on in this atmospheric picture. From the wisps of colour for its feathers, to the ghosted tree in the background, this elegant, sensual work delights in giving up its secrets to those willing to pay close scrutiny…
