This latest picture is painted with brushes in oils on 50 x 60 cm canvas. Inspired by a visit from my daughter, and delayed by her staying with me, this is how it turned out! I have to say it was lovely to have such a delightful distraction from my art! I hope you like it.
This one was definitely stalking me! He kept presenting himself to me and I have given way and had a go at painting him. For close observers of my work you will notice that the style is very slightly different – I hope you like the effect.
He’s painted in oils on 30 x 40 cm canvas.
This tiger looked so soft and cuddly and just like he was daydreaming. He has had a great response from social media which is pleasing as it means I must be doing something right! I hope you like him. He’s painted in oils on 40 x 40 cm canvas.
I have been concentrating on yet more animals as they are definitely creative wonders of the world and so diverse, and I love depicting them in paint.
The white tigers are painted in oils on a 50 x 70 cm canvas, and the “angry cat” is painted in oils with some cold wax on a 25 x 30 cm canvas.
I hope you like them!
I was so sad to hear that the hippos are becoming an endangered species. This picture is my tribute to these magnificent creatures. It’s oil paint on 50 x 60 cm canvas.
Hippos are being pushed towards extinction by an insatiable demand for their long ivory canine teeth. Unregulated hunting for their meat, skin, and teeth, combined with shrinking habitats and increased hippo-human conflict have lead to a decline in populations across Africa. The primary threat to both hippopotamus species (common hippo and the pygmy hippo) are habitat loss and deforestation.
