Canada Goose – 3 x 7; Original Lithograph; Edition Size 350; $450.00 U.S.
“Original printmaking allows artists freedom and fluidity as well as incredible tonal
and textural range – maybe that is why I happened to think of the work of the
old masters when I made this original print. I recalled in particular the etchings
of Rembrandt, which are so evocative of mood and atmosphere.
The Canada goose is just a simple little piece that I made in a tranquil moment.
Against a dark background, I used light sparingly to illuminate the essential forms
of the goose and the grasses. Perhaps, in its small way this original print is a
homage to Rembrandt’s rich and luminous work.”

Nature as a subject is becoming more and more popular as our environment is in peril. What better subject is there than the beautiful creatures we share this world with? Robert Bateman’s appreciation and understanding of nature are apparent in his paintings. He is able to paint flora and fauna the way your eye would perceive it in real life. It is important that the animal takes full attention. The background becomes muted, and therefore it doesn’t take too much focus away from the subject. His paintings seem effortless and masterful all at once.
