I new as soon as I saw this, I had to paint it!
It's title came instinctively as well.
All the branches twisting and turning, to encompass this beautiful Barred Owl in
such a delightful way. It is amazing, when you see wildlife just doing what they do within their home nesting area and they are not bothered by the human presence when respectfully viewing them.
While painting, I loved the play of lovely colours, from warm creams, beiges, greens next to the texture of the dark woods and then again bringing freshness to the soft feathers.
The depth of the composition really show cases where these creatures live and the backlighting was the icing on the cake for me.
It helped I was able to see the reflective light in the foreground and this completed my painting.
My thoughts, as I left it was, what a beautiful home for an incredible species we are so fortunate to witness this.
