We’re no strangers to Sophie Green’s spectacular animal portraits. The UK-based artist uses her masterful painting skills to create hyper-realistic renditions of animals large and small to raise awareness of their vulnerability. Not only that, but Green also donates 10% of its profits to wildlife and conservation charities.
The fate of the leak is one of his last finished paintings. Based on a photograph by fine art photographer Stefan Christmann, the piece depicts a group of young emperor penguins approaching the edge of a cliff, as if considering whether to jump off and try to swim. Each bird is rendered in exquisite detail, complementing the stormy ocean floor.
Another of his recently completed pieces features a close-up portrait of an African elephant, titled Broken. In this painting, the subject appears to emerge from a mysterious black background with the light source shining on the elephant’s face, trunk and ear. It will be auctioned this summer to help raise funds that will help protect the environment in Africa.
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.
