Louise Reilly – Jewel of Madagascar

Mixed Media, Original | 56 × 46 cm | Framed


Out of stock

Inspired by the lemur’s mesmerising eyes, Louise Reilly chose to mainly work with a limited palette of black, white and blue, then poured all the colour into those big beautiful eyes. She has chosen to leave the background plain, so as not to detract from the beauty of this ring-tailed lemur.

Pen and watercolour on paper


Louise Reilly is a wildlife artist from Essex who has a passion for birds and endangered species and she focuses her work on these. Her minimalist and contemporary style captures their unique form with a controlled scribble. Louise will then add colour in the form of watercolour, and sometimes other mediums, to bring them to life. Louise believes every animal has its own character and she aims to capture this using her skills and unique technique. Although she has a background in art and graphic design, Louise is self taught in her mediums, and has exhibited her work in Essex, Kent, Cambridge, Norfolk and London.
