Art and Beauty Tuesday--Jeff Ward
Today's painting is Eagle-Owl by Jeff Ward. I love the painterly style of this piece. You can see the brush strokes, like feathers, all over this owl. It's so fluffy, you just want to reach out and touch him.
The whole picture is done in shades of brown, black and white, the background almost an extension of the owl itself. The feathers seem to be blowing in the cold wind; the owl is fluffing himself up against the cold.
