- All paintings use a combination of traditional and digital techniques. The work begins with detailed drawings, in black or coloured graphite. Oil-painting washes are added before the image is scanned and completed with digital painting. All the prints on offer are somewhat smaller than the original works.
- Prices are for museum quality giclée prints on canvas with stretcher frames included. Prints on paper, and some smaller sizes are available upon request.
- Shipped directly from printer. For non-North American orders, prints cannot be shipped with stretcher frames. Please email to inquire.
With its spectacular markings, this medium-sized owl (13-17”) looks like a small version of the Great Horned Owl. Another owl with a world-wide rage in the northern hemisphere, but the European and Asian subspecies generally have more orange/tan markings on the chest. Many feature red eyes whereas the North American birds eyes are yellow. These birds, when alarmed, will ‘freeze’, looking very slim. They tend to be secretive, prefer thicker wooded areas and during the day roost close to tree trunks. The painting depicts a bird seen north of Toronto, Ontario that is beginning to relax after such a ‘freeze’.
