As a wildlife artist, I spend my time watching and photographing animals in their natural habitat to gain a thorough understanding of their individual characters. Each new composition begins outdoors as I follow an animal in the wild to learn its unique story and ends in my studio where I apply a detailed, precise painting style to create my life-like portraits. In this blog post, I hope to share my painting process for different artworks […]
