Tiger Wildlife Painting

Tiger Painting

Painting this piece did remind me just how much I enjoy the process but also how much I would really like to...

Tara Cat

Tara – Colour Pencil Cat Portrait Painting

Original colour pencil painting on drafting film of our cat “Tara”. The look on her face is priceless and a very typical ‘Tara’ look. Tara is not your average friendly physically affectionate cat, and for good reason. Tara and her litter mates were dumped in the bush as kittens when they were 6-8 weeks old, and eight years later she still hasn’t totally overcome her mistrust of humans. Tara is quite attached to our family in her own way,...

Hereford Heifer – Cow Painting

Living in a rural area provides me with a constant supply of inspiration for my art.  This young Hereford heifer was the only one to stay to investigate what I was doing when I stopped beside her paddock to get some photos.  The rest took off running as if I had jumped out of the car yelling “Hamburger!” Digitally Hand painted using a wacom Intuos 4 graphics tablet and Corel Painter. Please click the image below to purchase Greeting...
