Prize commission for ~HoneyandChai
, who requested a painting of a barn owl.
The barn owl (Tyto alba
) is sometimes referred to as the "ghost owl" or "demon owl" due to its eerie appearance and vocalizations. Personally, I think they're gorgeous but I'll admit that I find their calls a little creepy. You can listen and decide for yourself here
. Also, I took some liberties with the pattern of its speckles here. They're not accurate for this species.
