Information: The subject was a captive bird at Birdworld in Hampshire. Sketches were made directly from observation, photographs were taken and later used to continue the painting. The branch was painted directly from life, as was the lady bird on the branch. A side view was preferred as I wanted to create a sense of movement but without using a in-flight position. The Ladybird creates some additional interest, colour and further enhances a sense of direction. There is no background because I like the viewer to focus on the subject without any distraction of a background. Unframed prints can be ordered.
Snowy Owl Title: Snowy Owl
Size: 300 x 408mm 113/4 x 161/2
Medium: Watercolour on Paper
Style: Realistic

Information: The client wanted an owl but left to me to decide which, so after a visit to Birdworld in Hampshire were I sketched and photographed many owls I decided to paint the dramaticly coloured Snowy Owl. A large rock was found in a local field for the owl to stand on. These birds in their natural habitat have very few perches and are often seen on the ground as in the painting.
