The Stare

By: Shaun Crane

Charcoal and Acrylic

The inspiration behind this artwork focuses on the intimate relationship between a dog and his owner. The direct stare emphasises the trust and loyalty from one warm soul – transcending beyond the realms of the natural world into the viewers soul. The glare successfully endeavours to unite the viewer and the artwork in an affectionate rapport.

The glowing tonalities of oranges and ochres further supports the gentle and loving emotions emitted through the portrait of the animal- and the abstract background entwines perfectly with the overall composition.
