Painting: Acrylic, Paint on Canvas.
I am fascinated by wild animals, how they walk, look, the instinct and the wisdom they have. I like to watch images, photos and especially films in which you learn a lot about them and experience the beauty. It is frightening that some animals are threatened. I pay tribute to animals in a series of paintings. Not in a literal, realistic way, but I give a personal interpretation. I show the feeling, pleasure and versatility that the animals give me through my own 'instinct': painting with smooth brush strokes and special color combinations. This African leopard is the first in these series.
The painting is made on a high quality linen. The frame of the painting is very solid and made of aluminium, the sides are painted in a neutral grey colour. The painting has a direct, vivid expression and has lots of structure, layers and texture. The painting is finished with a satin varnish.
