Pony and Foal 500 Piece Jigsaw Puzzle
Pony & Foal is the title of this beautifully tranquil 500 piece Falcon de Luxe jigsaw puzzle that is part of the falcon Animals collection. The puzzle image depicts a mother pony and her young foal standing and drinking from a peaceful stream that is in the heart of the English countryside and surrounded by a lush field that is host to grazing sheep and horses. The soft and gentle tones of this that have been used, bring this image to life with a sense of peacefulness and tranquillity that puzzlers will notice as they lay down each piece of the jigsaw puzzle.
The Artist: Steve Crisp
ABOUT THE ARTIST: Steve Crisp studied around the late seventies at the prestigious Central St. Martin’s school in London at a time when many young students were graduating from college with new styles and ideas.
He is a fine example of someone who has gone on from that period to become a well-established, internationally known, award winning illustrator.
With a large and diverse catalogue of work especially from the eighties and nineties, many of which have become collectors pieces, Steve has managed to adapt well to the changing needs of illustration of digital techniques ten years or so ago.
Steve’s work features everything from traditional village scenes and cottages to fantasy images.
