Chris Dunn is an English illustrator and gallery artist whose most recent project is a series of watercolor paintings inspired by the classic children’s story The Wind in the Willows.
Dunn has a wonderfully finessed style, combining a visceral, tactile realism with a delightful portrayal of his anthropomorphic animal protagonists.
There is a warmth and charm to his take on the characters and settings that is well suited to the subject.
On Dunn’s website gallery and blog you will also find examples of his editorial illustration and other projects, but the emphasis is on this most recent series of paintings. There are prints of some of the pieces available through Dunn’s Etsy shop.
