The name says it all- "Night's Watch", creature that watches through night: The Great Horned Owl. I have been fascinated by these magectic birds, native to the east coast of USA for awhile and have been trying to capture its true essense. This is live size portarit of Great Horned Owl with two seperate miniature nightscapes in his eyes.
Painting is done using decorative style of Indian folk art - Kalamkari. Style is know for it's intricate designs and it's very limited color palette: white is exposed paper, painting is drawn with black paint and only one other color than red is used to evoke the painting. I find this style very challenging. It is primarily used as textile designing. Decorative elements of Kalamkari help me transport my landscapes to the fantasy world.
Painting is done on 21" x 29" Khadi paper. It is custom framed in black wooden frame with acid-free offwhite matt.
