Melanistic Barn Owl

Medium: Watercolor on hot-press paper, 5 X 7 inches.
Original: Not Available

A minipainting commission of a rather unusual barn owl. Melanism is when an animal has more pigment than normal,
resulting in darker markings. When it happens in barn owls, you get a very dark gray/rusty bird that is quite striking!
