Inspired by the beauty and rarity of these wonderful creatures I have made a portrait of this Tiger in oil paints. They are such noble and self-assured beings. This one is on 40 x 40 cm canvas. I believe he knows I love him!
These two paintings are a couple of elephant studies finished recently. Both were a challenge for me in their different ways.
The first – A Mother’s Love – is oil on canvas, 30 x 40 cm, and took a long time as it was a gift for someone very special in my life. I may have overworked it as a result, but hey, that’s life!
The second one, also oil paint, but on canvas board, 30 x 40 cm, was quicker to do and a little more relaxed as a result! Perhaps I am just getting more used to painting elephants!
I hope you like one or other, or both! I am tempted with a wolf I have seen as my next project – watch this space! Thank you for reading xx
This fellow was so engrossed in his contemplation he didn’t notice me creeping near to paint him! He’s painted in my favourite medium – oils – on canvas board, 30 x 30 cm.
He was so enjoying the warmth of the sun that he didn’t move and his attention was completely focused on the middle distance. He could have been meditating!
This elephant caught my attention recently and demanded to be painted. He has taken me a long time to complete, not his fault, but due to the unusually hot weather we have to contend with at the moment! It’s not often you find your oil paints drying out before you get to use them! I hope you like him and give him a thumbs up! He is painted on board, 30 x 40 cm.
The big cats are on canvas, 50 x 70 cm, and the abstract is on board, 30 x 40 cm. Both are mixed media and experimental!
I am undecided on my next topic (nothing new there really) but am open to suggestions if anyone has any bright ideas?! I suspect there are thousands of inspired people out there just waiting to set me a challenge! Be happy!
