My artwork is painted in watercolours, sometimes with some coloured pencil over the top for fine detail. I specialize in pet portraits, animals and fantasy. I can also do people and underwater landscapes. I don't charge any extra for extra animals/characters on the same page, nor do I charge extra for backgrounds.  

I can work from photos (e.g. of pets, particular people, etc.) or can work from the commissioner's description (e.g. fantasy-themed pictures; generic animal paintings, etc.). 

If you are providing photos, you'll need to find one where you're quite happy with the pose/position of the animal; I can make minor changes (such as removing the collar, fixing redeye, drawing in a missing foot where the photo has been cropped, etc.) but not large ones. I also like to have multiple photos just to get a better idea of how the animal/person looks. 

My artwork is for non-commercial use only, unless negotiated otherwise.

Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art
I am a self-taught traditional artist that uses watercolours and coloured pencils. I paint mainly animals and fantasy, with horses being my specialty and joy, but sometimes branch out to underwater landscapes and human portraits.

Such amazing detail in each and every picture. The ones drawn in coffee and tea and just so clever. I love that this talented person (you) lives in Australia, though I am biased  :D
