Artist's Description

Please take a moment or two to listen to this wonderfully haunting melody.

To me, owls have always been magical creatures, imbued with wisdom and they have always been prominent figures in mythology. They are also one of my favourite birds.

I have often wondered what an owl’s spirit looked like – ethereal, ephemeral, probably mystical and definitely dominated by those beautiful, hypnotic eyes. Perhaps I’ve taken a few liberties or let my imagination run a little wild…..

Created using Apophysis and manipulated in PSE.

The originals.

This one was resized in PSE, duplicated and mirrored and the details enhanced by increasing the sharpness. The “eye” was added as a layer prior to duplication and mirroring.

This one was resized, duplicated and mirrored numerous times, then the saturation levels were nudged up a little and a centre spotlight effect added…..

…..to give the eye.
