Owl makes their home with six trees – large original mixed-media painting


Large original one-off mixed-media painting of a stylised symbolic owl on a gold background surrounded by white skeletal trees. 30cm ruler shown for scale.

I am currently investigating the use of highly-simplified archetypal animals in a manner that renders them both familiar and strange.

The work is 76cm x 56cm on very thick Fabriano art paper. The paper will soon be affixed to strong board, hence the “coming soon” tag, but feel free to buy now for shipping from mid May (I’m moving house so might take a little while to fix to the board!). All vegan materials.

Mediums used are oil paint, oil pastels, gilding wax and a thin layer of acrylic as a base layer.

The piece will be wrapped carefully in glassine paper, cardboard and reused bubblewrap and shipped flat. It is unmounted and ready for framing. Because the work contains oil pastels care should be taken in the handling and the painting should be framed with glass
