OWLS live in the dense oaks across the street from a friend's house in central Florida. Sometimes they call even in the daytime from the dark shadows there. Their wingspans are surprising as they swoop low and silent at dusk.
The background is similar to Egyptian faience in color. There are some color additions in pencil and crayon and this drawing is a mixture of acrylic paint and india ink with flow agent. About 5 X 7 inches.
