Screech Owl in Winter
This Eastern Screech Owl is painted life size in mixed media. He’s rendered in cool tones to portray the chill of winter, but his green eyes are clear and bright. The materials used for this painting were watercolor, acrylic and oil on mounted watercolor paper. The 1 5/8″ uncradled panel is unframed but wired for hanging as is.
This piece was created for a BirdWhisperer Project monthly challenge.
I share my love of art and birds as the Creative Director of the BirdWhisperer Project online art community, and my work can also be found in scientific museums, children’s books, and private collections.
In addition to creating fine art, I collaborate on many forms of illustration work with my husband Anthony J. Schmidt. We call Wisconsin our home, which we share with our mini-artist daughter Penny.
