I'm very pleased to now be selling my father's mixed media wildlife / birds of prey paintings here on my shop!
- 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.
A medium-sized (13-17”) owl with a 3’ wingspan. With 28 subspecies, it has almost world-wide distribution, but unfortunately a species that has all but disappeared from Canada (apart from British Columbia). The heart-shaped white face with its black eyes, the ridge of stiff feathers above the bill (resembling a nose), and the white ‘diamond’ markings on the back and shoulders give the bird an unmistakable appearance. The painting depicts my one sighting in 1979: while following a Red-Tailed Hawk through a farm field adjacent to some thick woods, I stumbled across the pair.
