Inspiration

It was on a trip to Kenya that we first came face to face with wild lions and I was completely unprepared for the effect they would have on me. I, like everyone else I suppose, had seen them many times in wildlife documentaries, so I was probably a bit blasé about the experience, but the sheer scale of these animals in their natural habitat took my breath away. Most of the fauna in Africa is just so much bigger than anything we have here!

I've moved my art on a bit here, using pure oil paints applied relatively thickly. I've used the texture of the canvas (created with a mixture of primer, Polyfilla and sand) to create the fur textures. Only really going into any detail on the eyes, the heart of most wildlife art.

Buying Information

Framing

All original paintings, if available, use hand-made frames that are painted to the finest specifications. The colours are individually selected to match each piece of art, ensuring the best finish possible. The frames for prints (if available) are standard sized, pre-made, frames that are solid wood and made to the highest quality.

Although this particular painting isn't framed, at present, all original art (unless otherwise requested) are framed prior to dispatch.

Shipping

At present, I can only ship to the UK via the web site. A contribution to shipping costs has been included in the price to make things easier.

I can ship to other destinations, but I'll need you to get in touch, using the contact me form, for a quote if buying from outside the UK.

All the art I sell is packaged extremely carefully, to keep your painting safe for it's journey, no matter how far. This can take some time, especially with original paintings, however, I aim to ship all art within 2 working days.
