Realistic animal paintings raise awareness of endangered species

The biodiversity of our planet is one of the many things that make it beautiful. British artist Sophie Green celebrates animal species large and small with her beautiful acrylic paintings. She captures elephants, tigers, rhinos and more in her photorealistic depictions, which in turn help raise awareness of the vulnerability of these amazing creatures. Additionally, the beautiful, award-winning entertainer donates 10% of her profits to wildlife and conservation charities.

“I have drawn, sketched, painted and been obsessed with animals and their environment since childhood and will continue to do so for many years to come,” says Green. His portfolio of work includes an array of different animals from around the world. She uses her brush and acrylic paint palette to render each of them realistically, capturing every minute detail such as the texture of the skin, fur and feathers. Green enhances the drama of his paintings by placing each animal on a solid or cloudy background. In this way, she focuses the viewer’s attention only on the beauty of the subject.

“It’s impossible to admire the beauty of the natural world without also reflecting on its vulnerability,” Green continues. Much of his creative practice is devoted to inspiring others to “make a concerted effort to improve the dire situation in which our planet currently finds itself”. She hopes that by admiring the grace of animals in her paintings, people will remember that these creatures and their environments are still in danger.

You can purchase prints through Green’s online store and know that a portion of the proceeds go to wildlife conservation. Keep up to date with the artist’s latest projects by following her on Instagram.
