Title: Innocent Partner
Medium: Acrylic on stretched canvas
Size: 500mm x 600mm
2nd Prize winner in the Dunedin International Airport Art Awards
Original SOLD

This was a painting I recently finished. It was an art challenge held by the New Zealand Art Guild. Four things ha to be incorporated in an artwork, they were:
innocence, orange, umbrella and triangle.

Here is Little Red Riding Hood (the innocent) although she doesn’t look it here…with the Big Bad Wolf who has offered her shelter under his umbrella as it has started to snow again.

She is on her way to take some fruit (orange amongst them) to her elderly Grandma who lives in a cottage deep in the forest.

I wanted to interpret ‘triangle’ in the three character relationship i.e. Little Red Riding Hood, her Grandma and the Big Bad Wolf. Alternatively sections of the umbrella are triangular in shape.

    Fantastic! Love the look on the wolf’s face. And I like your triangle concept too, works very well.

  • Hi Alexandra, I sketched out a few wolf faces before this one and they ALL looked far too friendly. I decided it was the placement of the eyes…and making sure the eyes were not too large, whch resulted in a more cunning glare. Thank you ;) ~ Anni

    Nice work Anni, clever creation.

  • Hi Louise, I love wolf faces, especially those husky dogs…but tried to make him look a little sinister. Thank you ;) ~ Anni

    Hi Anni. Extremly well done. I see triangles in the ears as well. You’ve certainly nicely portrayed this beautifully. Stay warm. Regards, Steve
