Wildlife Art Blog – Latest Update

As you can see from the latest painting update I am now working my way down the painting. All those stripes can make your eyes go real funny, so I can only paint 2 zebra at a time before having a break. Ha… Not too many sessions left now before all the painting will be blocked in with it’s 1st coat of oil paint. Then the real work begins- bringing this painting to life!

I also had a sneak preview of some of the wildlife art that will be in the exhibit and I must admit that it appeared that anyone who’s anyone in UK wildlife art has a painting or print there!

The exhibition will be awesome and is certainly worth a visit, particularly as you can pick a print or painting up fully framed and ready to hang!

Wildlife Art – The Creative Process

The creative process has already gone through many stages before I even think about putting any paint on the canvas, from actually visiting the animal, whether that be in a wildlife park, private reserve or the wilds of Africa.

From there I gather my references and think about the composition, lighting and mood I want to convey.

The drawing is then put on the canvas, sealed with a thin acrylic coat and allowed to dry.

Adding the paint
The 1st layers of paint are merely blocking in, I am however conscience of painting in the fur direction even at this early stage.

The main challenge of this stage is to achieve a solid form, one which I can build detail and colour variations upon.

Continuation of the blocking in stage

Further blocking in
At this stage the first blocking in stage is almost complete. I estimate the painting to be approx 40% completed. Absolutely everything will now be adjusted as I bring the paintng to completion.

Refining
Refining the painting means adding many more layers of paint building upon the under layers (above) increasing the feeling of fur depth. I also glaze areas to give very subtly variations in colour.

Below you can see the finished painting.
