solar owls moon by busbyart solar owls moon by busbyart
here is the next of the solar owls -moon

Tyto Tenebricosa - sooty owl

Moon- The Time , The Reflection , The clarity


Took a rather long time this one think its due to me not being used to colouring in such dark colours and just mainly grey scale , i like my bright colours to much :)

in the image
-Ipomoea alba - or moon flowers to you and me a flower which blooms at night

-silver - the metal of the night and of the moon

-watch - the moon is seen in many religions etc as the keeper of time due to the changes in the moon and its control over the tides

-cancer - symbol on the watch- the star sign which is ruled by the moon

- fob watch- (a victorian watch for those that don't know) in victorian times the word lunatic was formed from the word luna meaning moon this was due to the idea of madness being controlled by the moon

-fish- the moon has control over the tides so many religions etc believe the moon has many links with the ocean e.g. a chinese belief was that the moon was made of water, erik ubibio people of nigeria africa believe the moon has control over fish and the floods.

Others in this series

The muted colours and composition of this are very striking, I think this might be the best of the series so far! :meow:

no idea partly think its the colours I'm used to shading/highlights in colours rather then plain white and black but for this one i had to which was really odd for me :)

It's good to get practice working purely with tone, since it can also help when you work with colour. But anyway, you did a fab job on this! :meow:
