Original Oil Painting on Wood
This Endangered Mural was my Covid -lockdown labour of love. Size 5ft x 4ft this was my happy meditative place. I designed it for my garden wall so that as painting enthusiasts enter the garden they will hopefully get excited about what they are going to paint with me at paint parties or what they are going to buy when they come to view.
I first sketched this piece and painted it in watercolour A3 size. By doing so, I adjusted the composition and scaled the drawing up by eye, primed the wood and set to work blending the background for the different animals position and how they would each migrate into each others zone. Working mainly with palette knives and in-between other projects, the images gradually emerged and graced us with their presence a little more as each week passed.
Whilst it is entitled Endangered, I am always relieved to find a species that was once threatened on the Endangered list, no longer vulnerable. This is the case with the Bald Eagle. I felt he acted like a beacon of hope for the others who still need more protection.
The others being a “Big tusker” Elephant; a laid back Orangutan; a Lion surveying all his land and an excited Sea Turtle. Ranging from being certified Vulnerable to Critically endangered, I want to raise awareness of their unique beauty of species that for me, would be a crime to loose. The original can be viewed in my garden in Kent alternatively you can always commission your own mural. The individual animals will also become available soon as prints
