The Night Watch-Barn Owl

Close ups

Oil on 6x6 canvas panel.

This is my contribution to this week's WDE at Wet Canvas. Lin was the great host. Thanks for the terrific reference photos, Lin.

Here's a barn owl in oil on a 6x6 canvas panel.
I had fun pushing the color, laying the paint on thickly, and inventing a background.
Thanks for looking!

  1. Once my Mom and I saw a snowy owl fly out of a barn window right over our heads. It was awesome...huge like a B2 bomber but completely silent! I'll always remember that...this painting captures the magnificence of a totally gorgeous bird

  2. The light in the background complements the light on his/her face.

  3. It's hot and beautiful, Dean!


  4. This is wonderful, Dean. Great composition. You've been busy - very nice work, my friend!

  5. Absolutely stunning, Dean. I love this type of owl too!
