I Hate Everything by CrimsonMagpie I Hate Everything by CrimsonMagpie
More work from the owl project.

During the course of some image 'research' I found this image [link] and thought it'd make a good jumping-off point for a painting.

Since the project this was for revolved around experimentation I decided to paint this on a piece of cardboard I had lying around. That and I had no paper stretched. :B



Acrylic on cardboard, 29.7 x 21cm 11.7 x 8.3"

We all have days like this...

(Also, this reminds me a lot of one of the great horned owls at the nature center where I used to volunteer. She had a very strong personality.)

Indeed, I seem to be having rather a lot of them lately. :stare:

I spent a week doing work experience at a local bird-of-prey centre, and can indeed testify to some of the birds having distinct personalities. =p

Aw, somebody didn't have his morning coffee.

 

(Can owls even drink coffee?)

I don't think owls drink at all, getting all their hydration from the meat they consume. :meow:

They are pretty cool birds, amongst the most perfectly adapted predators on the planet. Their eyes're so powerfully adapted for binocular vision that they cannot move them, which is why they're able to move their heads so much. :p
