About the work

“Giraffe with Peonies” was an experiment with trying a simpler artistic style that relied on line work to highlight the details with watercolour acting as the support medium. I had a very clear image in head from the very start for how I wanted this illustration to look. The completed artwork is not far off from that mental image. A notable detail to point out are the flowers hung around the giraffe’s neck. I purposely chose peonies because they can get to be quite big, a thus would be better proportion to a large animal such as the giraffe. Additionally, their placements also helps to break up the picture and add interesting detail to what may otherwise be a plain illustration.

The original work hangs in a private collection.
