There's a moment, when a Barn Owl is hunting, when it seems to pause before plumetting down onto whatever unfortunate creature it has found. A moment when it seems to hang, almost motionless, almost defying gravity. I've tried to catch that in this picture....you can decide for yourselves whet comes next!
The drawing was done using a technical pen - I wanted really fine lines and the painting is in watercolour with a little pen work after, just to redefine the details.
Mounted and framed in a wooden frame, all ready to hang.
