Original Oil Painting on Canvas with Gold leaf details

'The Benevolent Giraffes'

Vulnerable (VU)

(30inch x 24inch/76cm x 61cm)

My intention with this piece was to create not only something visually beautiful and appealing to the audience, but something which would also grab their attention and draw them into the painting for a closer look. I wanted to express the strength, majestic beauty and vulnerability of this vulnerable and critically endangered species. I developed a unique wet on wet style using oil paint to create streaks of hazy, merging, vibrant colours and added details of 24 ct gold leaf.

 As an animal lover and artist, I found myself embarking on a journey, in which it was my mission to not only attempt to create beautiful artwork but to capture the majestic beauty of animals who live among us in this ever-changing world.

Furthermore, the desire I had was not only to capture their beauty but also their vulnerability, as well as their strength. I had hoped to create some awareness through my artwork, of some of the incredible animals we share this world with who are classified as vulnerable, endangered and critically endangered. I felt a sense of responsibility to raise awareness and remind people of the beauty of our animals, before any more of them become extinct from the world we know and continue to destroy.
