Artwork description:

I have a large collection of Observer Books, with a few duplicates. I've used some of these duplicates to start a little series of paintings.
The battered book cover is a lovely surface to paint on, and takes the paint really well.
There will be more added over time but for now I have a Kingfisher, a Hare, an Oleander Hawk Moth, some Cacti, a Small Tortoiseshell Butterfly and a Zebra .
First published in 1972 this Zoo Animals Edition originally had a glossy coat to the jacket, unlike the earlier books. Time and use has worn this away which has given rise to some nice, subtle variations in the black colouration. A Zebra seemed the obvious choice for the subject !
I have mounted the book flat onto an 3mm A4, white stained wooden panel.

I have initialled on the front and signed the back and it will be presented in a display bag ready for framing or for gifting!

Materials used:

Wooden panel, vintage book and acrylics
