Barn Owls

Barn Owls

This is quite a small piece for me – sized only at 7×5″ before framing.  Depicting a family of barn owls out on a starry night, this piece is made entirely from painted papers to really show off the textural aspect of the birds.

Made as a custom order for a family of three it was only right to make them into the owls themselves (their request with the order was just “something with an owl”).

The stars in the background are made using gold paint so they really do shine and glitter in the light, and all of the papers used are painted by me to really bring that texture to the forefront.
