Barn Owl - Machrie, Arran by Atriedes Barn Owl - Machrie, Arran by Atriedes
Watercolour HP 300gsm
Commission for a friend - OK, its not very likely you're going to get an owl to sit on a post in the snow, in daylight but that's what she wanted.
For all that, I'm really pleased the way this turned out and was loathed to hand it over but it is her place in the background. We dont get a lot of snow round here but this year we did - lots!

I really like the background in this one, really reminds me of how my neck of the woods looks in the winter time thought I have never seen any owls sadly. - -,

It might not be the most natural setting for a Barn Owl, but it still looks great! This is a really beautiful painting of a really beautiful bird. I love the patterns on the feathers and the colours of the owl. The background looks fantastic too.

I've done Barn Owls in coloured pencil, oils, and acrylics... and I'm thinking I'll need to try it in watercolour at some point now, because this has turned out brilliantly.
