A few years ago, I decided to concentrate my artwork mainly on wildlife paintings. I love being in fields and forests in regions where people are sparsely populated or non existent. When I’m in the field and can have complete isolation from people is when I am in my element. I try to convey that mood of complete isolation in each of my wildlife paintings. These paintings are painted using gouache paint, a water based, opaque paint that can be reused 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.
The paintings on this page were painted on watercolor paper or cold press illustration board. Prints of this painting and others can be bought at my store on Fine Art America. To purchase originals, please send me a message through my Contact page.
