Wildlife Paintings in Gouache – A few years ago, I decided to concentrate exclusively on wildlife themed artwork. When I am in the field, I like being in a region where the population of people is sparse or non existent. When I can have complete isolation from people in the field is when I am truly at home. Therefore, I try to convey that mood of complete isolation in each of my paintings or drawings.

The Benefits of Water Based Paint

This painting was exhibited at the prestigious St. Augustine Art Association’s Wildlife Exhibit in 2018.

Today I paint with gouache paint. It’s a water based, opaque paint that you can paint with after it has dried. I often spend hours mixing the colors and minutes painting. During the many years that I painted using acrylic paint, I would have to remix the paint day after day. Not so with gouache. If I mix a large amount of paint but can’t paint for two weeks, no problem. Two weeks or two months later, I add water and the paint is still good.

Watercolor Paper and Illustration Board

I used 400 Series watercolor paper or double thick cold press illustration board for each of these paintings.

Fish and Wetlands Habitats

My artwork places an emphasis on fish and wetlands habitats. Therefore, you will see several species of ducks, wading birds and fish in my portfolio.
