‘Early evening stretch’

  • Many beautiful pictures are made of barn owls in old barns, but I prefer to paint owls without using lamps and flashes. Using natural light for night and twilight animals is not easy for photographers, filmmakers and painters, however, and it took a while before I got hold of the cool, blue evening light as I had it in mind. Unfortunately, I do not get this beautifully successful light displayed quite right on this website, so come and see the original! This barn owl has just woken up and only needs to stretch his right wing before the hunt begins..
