Through the Trees
Being in the woods can be absolutely magical. Sometimes, all it takes is looking between the trees.
In this scene, I wanted the viewer to feel as though they were looking between two trees to spot a fox at a stream, and a barn owl in the branches above. To see either of these animals is fairly uncommon, and to see them together, extremely rare. I wanted to create a sense of awe and majesty with this piece, to help the viewer feel more connected to nature, as though they were part of it.
As this piece was done on cherry wood, with a medium dark grain, I had to increase the contrast in the piece by using light and dark wood stains.
