‘Beautiful Beast’ is a Giclée Print by contemporary artist Louise McNaught. Printed onto 330gsm Somerset Velvet Paper, the print is from a limited edition of 25, and is signed and numbered by the artist.
The work of Louise McNaught takes its inspiration form the natural world: raising the status of animals and creatures to the majestic and sublime, McNaught creates bold images, using striking colour and compositional techniques.
For ‘Beautiful Beast’, McNaught employs her signature ‘bleed’ motif, with soft, thin lines of orange and beige paint running down the print to produce a gentle sense of dynamism and flow. The trails have been created by a large, long-necked giraffe, who dominates the print with a stately and serene majesty. Set against a beautiful, sage-green background, McNaught has captured the creature in astonishing, painterly detail and with stunning intensity.
