Belgravia in Bloom – Painted Dog – Heather Irvine


Painted Dog
30 x 30 cm
Acrylic on canvas

“Painted Dogs are a favourite subject of mine and having felt very inspired by the lustrous colours of spring outside (green and pinks in particular) I wanted to see if I could abstractly use that palette to bring warmth to the  piece, whilst complimenting the species.” – Heather Irvine 


Artist bio

Heather is a contemporary wildlife, equestrian and nature inspired artist dedicated to promoting conservation through her work with a percentage from each piece going straight back to the many animals she depicts. Heather’s work is bold, bright and expressive and she is a bit of an experimenter, but she loves nothing more than getting down and dirty with a stick of charcoal! Heather has a passion for horses, terriers and all wildlife, but Painted Dogs are her go to species and with only roughly 6600 left in the wild today, she hopes her paintings and drawings of them help promote awareness and raise vital funds for this enigmatic species.
