‘Kissed By the Sun’ is a Giclee by contemporary artist Louise McNaught. From a limited edition of 50, the print 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 ‘Kissed By the Sun’, McNaught employs her signature ‘bleed’ motif, with soft, thin lines of black and yellow paint running down the print to produce a gentle sense of dynamism and flow. The trails have been created by a large, swallowtail butterfly, who dominates the print, its striking, electric-yellow wings, edged with an intricate black pattern, captured by McNaught with stunning intensity.
