Well, I recently have been getting some commissions for wildlife paintings which were very interesting to do. Quite a challenge too really, moving away from the usual pet portraits.
The deer oil painting is on a canvas size 60 x 50 cm and is for a keen hunter in Holland who is really delighted with the end result!! Always pleasing to hear. I like the tentativeness of the deer which appears to be unsure whether to continue the stroll in the woodlands or not.
The wild boar oil painting is on a canvas 90 x 70 cm and was a commission of a South African hunter who lives in mid France. I have painted this particular type of painting before as you can see from my previous blogs and in the photo gallery. However, I was not happy with the background as I found it too bland. So this time I have added all sorts of warm autumn colours and added more background. The recipient was very happy with the final painting.
I'm busy working on my blog posts. Watch this space!
