'Painted dog' is the second, of what will be multiple Painted dog portraits as they are truly a stunning animal, unnecessarily persecuted.  I honestly just love these dogs, their presence, beauty and amazing tenderness, and most of all the way they simply move around.  It is simply saddening and sickening that there are now less than 7,000 of these left across the entire continent.  I hope to never see their extinction in my lifetime.  I wanted to highlight this disappearance by simply having one painted dog, surrounded by white to emphasise this loss, rather than a pack, which they typically move in.


Simply being aware of how an animal is portraid within an image online and not 'liking' or 'sharing';  watching animals performing acts that are simply done for our entertainment; riding animals, particularly elephants, simply for a day out; attending animal circuses or cuddling baby cats to have photos taken  are all things that everyone can help stop doing to end these horrific acts and just thinking about what that animal has, and is, going through simply for a 'photo opportunity' is one step towards ending their suffering.


The portrait has been printed onto Fine Art paper, acid free and archival watercolour inkjet paper. It is a watercolour surface texture with a 100% alpha cellulose, premium matte inkjet coating, archival standards guaranteed, using museum quality archival pigment ink that will last at least 100 years plus. The paper enables you to see every pencil mark that you would expect from the original artwork.
