This 11"x14" unframed original watercolor painting of a snowy owl is painted on 140lb natural white watercolor paper with rough texture.
The snowy owl is a large, powerful owl of the high Arctic tundra, colored for camouflage during northern winters. In summer it may be nomadic, concentrating and nesting where there are high populations of the small rodents called lemmings.
Most North American breeding areas are remote from effects of human disturbance, but climate change is likely to affect many Arctic birds. Has declined in parts of breeding range in northern Europe.
*** There is a light press watermark on the bottom of the paper from the watercolor paper company Fabriano - see last photo. Every large sheet of Fabriano paper has a light imprint of their brand on the bottom, so when cut into smaller sizes for painting, this watermark shows up occasionally.
Original paintings will be carefully wrapped in tissue or kraft paper for extra protection and reinforced by a backing board. Paintings larger than 11x14in will be rolled in kraft paper and shipped in thick mailing tube.
Shipping: All original artwork will be shipped via USPS Priority with tracking for US orders and USPS First Class International with tracking for international orders.
