In this painting I wanted to represent a child’s world. I tried to represent the different aspects of childhood with its innocence, its wildness and its dangers. The fairy represents the child, cheeky mythical creature that I found fitting. The forest represents the wild world around the child with dangers lurking around that we are not always aware off. So I decided to give the child protection: the Gorilla is a fierce animal, violent at times, and impressive to look at. I thought the animal fitting because of these reasons. I really enjoyed this work because it was the first time I worked on canvas with acrylic paint and I really loved it. I saw the differences with the watercolor paint that I was using previously.
