Little owl – acrylic painting

Little owl

It was the owl that shriek’d, the fatal bellman, Which gives the stern’st good night.
William Shakespeare

Another bird and another owl – this time it is little owl. Nocturnal little cutie from my parents’ garden. I’ve used the photograph taken by my father as an inspiration.

Painting technique is similar to one I used when painting dragon series. Paint on the canvas smeared with the plastic foil to create the texture. Green hues and tones used created the illusion of the leaves and vegetation.

I’ve painted the little owl and added patches of light blue colour as sky coming through the branches.
