Nature Prevails High Contrast


Beverley Harper Tinsley


Painting - Mixed Media Watercolor On Repurposed Paper


This warm earth-toned owl is painted with a light hand, on repurposed paper from an outdated, aging, yellowing and falling apart book. The paper proves ideal for a warm, natural appearance that compliments natural subjects, although it is tricky to work on. The original has deckled/torn edges, and would look good either floated or matted and framed. It is the first in a series of up-cycled art I am developing using old books and sheet music no longer in use. This is an adjusted, higher contrast version of the original listed under the title "Nature Prevails". The original is available. The colors will be slightly less intense than on this version.
Owls are among my favorite subjects, and truthfully I can't exactly say why. But they fascinate me with their mysterious appearance, nocturnal activity and long history as a symbol in word mythology and culture. 
Owls are a group of birds that belong to the order Strigiformes, constituting 200 extant bird of prey species. Most are solitary and nocturnal, with some exceptions (e.g., the Northern Hawk Owl). Owls hunt mostly small mammals, insects, and other birds, although a few species specialize in hunting fish. They are found in all regions of the Earth except Antarctica, most of Greenland and some remote islands. Though owls are typically solitary, the literary collective noun for a group of owls is a parliament. Owls are characterized by their small beaks and wide faces, and are divided into two families: the typical owls, Strigidae; and the barn-owls, Tytonidae.
Upcycling is the process of converting waste materials or useless products into new materials or products of better quality or for better environmental value.
The first recorded use of the term upcycling was by Reiner Pilz of Pilz GmbH in an article by Thornton Kay of Salvo in 1994.
