An original painting of a Panda in special acrylic paint on lightly textured, high quality pale green leather in a satin bronze-effect frame ready for wall hanging. The painting was inspired by a visit to the San Diego Zoo in Feb 2014.
I like doing wildlife work with a realistic style making the animal the sole subject of the painting and only a hint of the surrounding it is in. There must always be some challenge in producing each leather artwork, in this case adapting my painting technique to utilising the texture of the leather to provide a near 3D surface finish to capture the texture of its fur and ensuring the background is present but out of focus. The painting is framed and ready to wall-hang, the artwork is not behind glass - the extremely robust and tactile nature of the paint and techniques used means the painting can be touched.
