The exciting one of a kind series of our hand-painted Wildlife Book Covers pictures a diverse range of wildlife silhouettes in dynamic poses using a modern pastel palette. Each creature's pose has a sense of motion that continues to keep our attention despite the simplicity of form. What furthers their refinement is the relationship between the stippled and textured backing layers under the smooth matt finish of the defining colour. This really creates the notion of a three dimensional shape on a surface that goes beyond the book cover. These fine art pieces are mounted with elevation, which gives a further sense that each one is an individual piece of artwork in its own right. The silver frame with its inner silver slip compliments the work perfectly and subtly highlights some of the metallic tones in the stippled areas of the animal's shape.
