Icon II: The Panther by Lynnette Shelley

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

The second artwork in my new ICON series. The royal panther is resplendent in purple against a golden background.

The original artwork measures 11 × 15″ and is rendered with oil pastels, woodless colored pencils, art pens, metallic paint pens, and embellished with colored foil. I used a heavy textured Strathmore Artist paper (dark purple).

The colors on this artwork scan are not quite true to life, unfortunately, but this is the closest I was able to tweak it.

Having a great love animals, fairytales, and world mythology, Pennsylvania artist Lynnette Shelley fuses these influences into her strikingly unique illustrations. Her artwork strikes a primal chord in many viewers, with almost Jungian associations to the colors and shapes. Her artworks have been likened to images from an undiscovered ancient civilization or culture.
