Pale Queen by antoniavogel Pale Queen by antoniavogel
Portrait of a barn owl. Watercolor and pencil, 2012.
I made this for my art exhibit "Behind the fence?", since barn owls are often neighbors (or even flatmates!) to us, and we don't even notice!
The ghostly pale feathers and pitch black eyes may look strange, even scary, but also really fascinating!

On technical level I really like contrast between the intentionally rough drawn background and the shiny, glossy eyes - both black, but so different.
