Wildlife Drawings Gallery

Below are some of the wildlife drawings I have completed recently in coloured pencil and graphite. 

The surfaces I have used vary: I try to pick the paper or board that is most suitable for the subject matter. This can range from the ultrasmooth drafting film to the textured pastelmat or sanded paper. The smaller drawings tend to need a smoother surface in order to render all the details. 

I only use lightfast pencils, which ensures that the original will not fade. These can be a mixture of brands, but they all work wonderfully together. 

All the drawings on this page were based on my own photographs. These were either taken close to home or on my travels in previous years. 

My originals are often for sale, you only have to ask. :) I am also starting to release prints, created with archival inks on beautiful textured paper. All limited edition prints will be hand signed, numbered and will come with a certificate of authenticity.

If you have a favourite animal or bird and would like to consider suggesting it as a forthcoming drawing please feel free to use my contact page. If you would rather commission me to draw from your own photograph I would be happy to discuss that with you also.

Thank you for your interest in my artwork. Enjoy your visit to my site and do have a look around while you are here.
