Black Barn Owl by KristynJanelle Black Barn Owl by KristynJanelle
Colored pencil on A4 recycled paper, around 5 hours.

"I LOVE ____!"
When talking to people who love birds, the most frequent thing I hear the blank filled in with is "owls" x] So I figured some more practice with owls might be a good idea!

This is a melanistic barn owl, which is essentially the opposite of an albino. It is the same condition that results in panthers, as well as a few other animals, and it can result in a very unique look. You can read more about melanism here : [link]

Sold! See my journal for other pieces : [link]

I wonder what is the feeling if that kind of bird watches you with its huge eyes ...
