Tawny owl in the snow is painted in watercolour and gouache.
This original painting was created from photo’s and sketches. The backdrop was inspired from near where I lived in Hockley, Essex. The owl captured by sketches and photos from a local birds of prey centre. I have never been this lucky to see one in the wild so close.

    Wow… Such detail. Owls are such marvellous species, so beautiful and mysterious, adorable but deadly!

    I like the background subtly fading away as your eye draws further back too. Between it and the sky, it really gives the effect of a real misty/foggy or snowy day.

    Can’t really comment any further technically [I’m no painter, and what little I did in school was with acrylics only], but fabulous work, Sarah. Hope you sell afew of these for Christmas. :)

  • Thanks so much Daniel for your lovely comment I really appreciate you taking the time x
