Wildlife painting always tells a story. Capturing the tension of the hunt, the split-second decision of fight or flight. There is always such strong life force in wild creatures.
I vary my technique depending on the mood I want to create for each piece. I always try to maintain a brushy and painterly quality to the finished works. I want them to feel like paintings as opposed to photographs. I find photorealism impressive as a skill, but a bit uninspiring for artistic expression.
