My Eagle Owl portrait A Thousand Yard Stare is now available as an oversized canvas print in very limited numbers. At 90x60cm, it’s a dramatic statement piece that will look simply stunning in the right setting. This exclusive edition is strictly limited to just ten pieces, and each arrives hand signed with a numbered certificate of authenticity. Printed to the highest standards by a fine art printer on matte canvas and gallery-wrapped onto a 40mm wooden frame, ready to hang.
These items are printed on demand, so will add approximately seven days to my usual delivery schedule. Only available in the UK due to their large size.
I drew this coloured pencil portrait (a close crop, to showcase those amazing eyes) at a substantial 50x35cm – firstly to make the most of all that gorgeous detail, but also to create a dramatic, slightly intimidating statement piece that will command attention and become the focal point of almost any setting.
Also known as the Eurasian Eagle Owl, the European Eagle Owl is the largest owl species in the world, and is easily recognisable from the ‘ear’ tufts and piercing yellow or orange eyes. Eagle Owls are found in mountainous areas and coniferous forests throughout Europe and Russia, and through the Himalayas to China, with a varied diet that includes other birds, rodents, and fish, they can even tackle small deer.
Whilst there thought to be a handful of breeding pairs in the UK, the Eagle Owl is not considered a native British species. However, it is familiar sight in captivity, where they may live longer than 40 years, and a well-loved highlight of falconry displays due to its size, beauty, and temperament.
