“By your side”
Hand finished gallery canvas
When I first laid eyes on the photograph, I could not resist painting these two gorgeous creatures. It was durning COVID as we were all in lockdown, unable to embrace, cuddle our loved ones. We all had to keep our distance for fear we would catch or pass on this deadly virus. When love means we must be separate.
So, these beautiful creatures inspired me to create this image. This watercolour wolves painting was born. It shows how one wolf was comforting the other, as a reminder of “Always by your side”.
I felt a limited colour pallet was necessary. I used deep blues and browns both light and dark to bring out the depth of the fur.
I have loved creating this piece. I hope this shows throughout the brushwork and that it brings joy and hope to many people. We will one day be able to feel comfortable to the physical closeness that we have lost.
This watercolour wolves canvas painting is limited only to 50 pieces in this series. Furthermore, it comes unframed, and with a certificate of authenticity. Likewise, I am happy to arrange at an additional cost to have it framed if you prefer. These wolves are gallery printed and professional stretched and mounted onto wooden stretcher bars with framers tape.
In addition, each piece is signed and numbered by me, the artist. I will also hand finish each piece. This means that each watercolour wolves piece will be very slightly different. For example, a piece of gold here and there. Perhaps instead a piece of glitter paint or texture. Furthermore, this will keep each one totally unique in it's own right.
In the photos attached they are showing the canvas in situ and are a similar size to the final piece.
Size of piece 60cm x 60cm
