As with much of our wildlife, these stunning birds have suffered significant declines, largely due to habitat loss and fragmentation; contrary to popular belief, they make a hissing sound rather than hooting (likely to be a tawny owl if you hear an owl hooting) and they mostly feed on field vole in the UK.
I adore barn owls and I am lucky enough to see one fairly regularly. If you click on the images in the gallery above, you can see the drawing in more detail … and don’t worry, the watermark isn’t present on the drawing itself.
When buying this artwork, you have a choice of finishes:
- without any mount or frame (drawing size is approx. 10×7 inches); or,
- mounted, framed (14×11 inches) and ready to hang on the wall. The black frame is handmade in the UK and uses wood from sustainable UK sources. For safety reasons during transportation, the frame is supplied with clear perspex rather than glass (visually, perspex provides an identical finish to glass); perspex also makes the frame light-weight for hanging purposes. Mount board is a charcoal-black colour to complement the artwork.
As with all my originals, the artwork complies with the highest archival standards, meaning it is created to last.
