Athena’s Owl, a commissioned artwork

Athena’s Owl was a commissioned artwork for an Airbnb located in the centre of Athens. I was thrilled to receive this commission and amazed at the synchronicity of its subject matter as I had recently been sketching and exploring the idea of creating an artwork with an owl!

When I finished ‘Golden Pelican’ I began these studies (above) of owls as that’s what I intended my next artwork’s subject to be. Little did I know that I would get this amazing commission to create, what else, but an owl!! So it would seem my year began with a HOOT!!!

The only real challenge for me in this particular commission was in keeping to the specific colour palette made up predominantly of neutrals -not my usual colour palette- as per my client’s specifications which pertained to the brand and their colour palette. The theme of this particular Airbnb is the Owl of Athena, which of course inspired the ancient greek elements in my design. Although my artwork is usually more colourful, my client wanted it to be in a predominantly neutral palette following the brand’s colours. Regardless, I thoroughly enjoyed creating this owl and was super pleased with the result, as I believe my client was too!
