Wildlife oil paintings in progress - Wildlife Artist - Martin Ridley

See how a piece of artwork is developed through to completion


Welcome, here is an example of one of my wildlife paintings in progress.

Follow an oil painting demonstration, see how a piece of artwork evolves from the first compositional drawings through to the final brush stroke and preview my very latest wildlife paintings. Current drawings and paintings are displayed using digital camera shots. Please come back on a regular basis, I'm sure there will be some fresh images for you to look at.
