He Ain't Heavy, He's My Jackdaw
An inquisitive young jackdaw landed on the stone statue in my garden and inspired this drawing. He looked like a rather heavy load for this little boy to carry, hence the title! Derwent Lightfast and Caran d'Ache Luminance pencils on Clairefontaine Pastelmat board with Pan Pastel background. All materials used are acid free and meet the highest standards of lightfastness. Artist's own reference photograph used. Please note, the watermark does not appear on the artwork. Image measures approximately 9.5" x 11.75" (24cm x 30cm).
My thanks to Ian Unwin for his amazing reference photograph. A magnificent Sumatran tiger charges towards us through the jungle undergrowth in this pastel painting. Sumatran tigers are the smallest of the five tiger subspecies and have narrow stripes. They are critically endangered, with a wild population of as few as 400 individuals. This pastel painting was created using Panpastels and pastel pencils on Pastelmat board.

When Shaun creates a piece of work the process is mainly based on his experimenting with colour and textures combined with his emotions and environment at that time. On completion his aim is for you the viewer to see their own interpretation when looking at the artwork. His paintings are not primarily intended to create definitive images although that is what you the viewer may perceive. However, if asked from his perspective, Shaun would say using multi-layers of paint, textures and colours are more important. Framed in recycled black wood frame. Colours will vary slightly from screen resolution. Room example only not too scale. Signed on the back. With certificate of authenticity.
Lively, fun and colourful painting, will have a striking effect on any wall, home or office definite conversational piece, I really enjoyed painting this. There is some added texture as is usual with my art . As with all abstract this painting can be hung anyway up to suit your preference and is signed on the reverse for this reason
