Wildlife Art Pastel Paintings Gallery

Pastel is a relatively new medium I have discovered. The ease with which I am able to create velvety soft fur is one of the reason I was attracted to pastels. The other reason is how the bold rich colors easily blend on the paper giving the impression I am painting (without a brush) rather than drawing. I imagine that is why pastel artwork is most often referred to as a painting.

Private commissions are accepted for any animal or wildlife subjects you require. To commission a wildlife drawing or painting, clients can use their own photographs or may choose from  my personal reference collection. Please contact me for details.

Don't forget to visit my Wildlife Drawings Gallery, Wildlife Paintings Gallery and Work-in-Progress pages for more animal portraits.
