Bright Eyes, 6 x 6 " oil on panel, ©2013, Fay Terry
Owls are fun to paint and are just one of the many creatures sometimes associated with Halloween.
Bats, black cats, spiders, and a few others are among this group.
Owls are unable to move their eyes within their sockets very much, which means they must turn their entire head to see in a different direction. Since owls have forward facing eyes, they have very well-developed binocular vision. That means vision that incorporates images from two eyes simultaneously. The slight differences between the two images, seen from slightly different positions, give the owl excellent depth perception.
Have a great week-end! Thanks for viewing my art.
