Painting animals

I really like the water based oil paints and started a small series of animal paintings on A4 MDF panels. I wanted the backgrounds to work as much as the subject matter but without overpowering the animals.

All these were done in the studio and therefore I was able to work in my own time and keep reviewing the work until I was happy.

The horses were taken from photos I took at my daughters riding stables.

The cows and pigs from photos taken on my walk around Norbury Park with Molly.



My next stage is to work on larger landscapes, using my photos of places close to me in the Surrey Hills.
