Evanescent. Latin for: to fade or to disappear suddenly. The following image was part of an individual exhibition about endangered species in Costa Rica, and their link to us.
This collection was first exhibited in the Casal Català (Catalan Society) in San José, Costa Rica. Currently being exhibited in La Galeria, Heredia, Costa Rica.
Each painting depicts a set of animals and a girl. This digital painting portrays five Golden Toads (Incilius Periglenes) an extinct species endemic to Costa Rica.
This is the only painting which depicts an extinct animal. Because of that, I decided to give the portrait a grim feeling by coloring just the toads, and using a gray-scale palette on the girl and background.
