5” x 7”, watercolor, white gel pen, white ink and pencil. Testing out the aquarelle paper I picked up a while ago, and more playing with weird lighting.

Owls are one of many creatures called psychopomps in folklore, said to guide the spirits of the dead to the afterlife, hence the title and the little glowey spirit bits. I really like barn owls, they have such a pretty, alien look to them, I used to sketch them a lot in high school but I never finished painting one. I suck a lot less at painting feathers now, so that helps.
