I love to capture the nature of animals in the portraits that I paint. I find that the eyes and noses of animals is where a lot of their character comes through, so this is where I focus into the detail. I tend to keep the neck downwards more sketchy and textured, whilst perhaps highlighting a collar detail for that added personal touch.
I primarily work in pencil, watercolour and ink, on thick textured paper.
Please contact me through my website for portrait requests and I can discuss more about the process.
