#133 – King of the Forest
Original Work By Jeff Dillon
This piece is all about the intensity of the wolf’s entrancing eyes and unwavering stare. I created this portrait to embody the fierce spirit of the wolf and to provoke emotion in the viewer. Almost like an apparition, this wolf appears seemingly out of nowhere, its piercing eyes and face are the first to break the camouflage of its environment. The dense coat is detailed in linework of graphite grey, mars yellow and titanium white pigments; the vibrant eyes are rich in naples yellow.

Jeff Dillon the Canadian Artist, inspired by the bold colours and brush strokes of Post-Impressionist Artists. His unique style focuses on capturing light, not through the detail of realism, but with gesture, illusion, shape and colour. He offers a personal and distinctive style to the world through his bold use of colours and lines, often symbolic images or subject matter. Objects in the paintings retain their realistic appearance yet have a vibrancy and fluidity about them, unique to his work. Jeff Dillon’s new expression of Post-Impressionism is both beloved and revered in the Canadian and Global Contemporary Art World.
