Phenomenon

This week's prompt on Illustration Friday is Phenomenon



"Beauty is a primeval phenomenon, which itself never makes its appearance,
but the reflection of which is visible in a thousand different utterances
of the creative mind, and is as various as nature herself."


I have posted this painting before, but I thought it suited the quote nicely.
I had SO much fun on this little guy's feathers!
Thanks for stopping by

Thank you for the comment. Nice quote and I really like the details of the feathers.
The owl really stands out from the plain textured background. Well done.

I haven't thought of beauty in this way. (I like the words!)In fact I'm not sure whether I've ever thought about it. But it doesn't mean that I don't notice and admire its presence around us.
I like your approach to the theme.:) The blue feathers are lovely and are connected with the night - the owl's world. A good choice for the background.

I really love how the blue stands out against the brown! I love the way you've painted the eyes too, such delicate little brushstrokes! :) xx
