In recent times, however, I approached a more classic and representative style, in some ways less ‘contaminated’, becoming part of the large community of wildilfe artists and also dedicating myself to portraits of pets and not on commission. The wildlife art is a current that attracts more and more fans from every part of the globe and that makes the contemplation of the animal and vegetable world (especially in this age of devastation and looting of planetary natural resources) the fulcrum of representation, often extremely realistic and taken care of in the smallest detail.

First of all, I prepare the background with primary yellow and black (mixing an excellent olive green), some bladder green and bright green. It is advisable to create a backdrop with blurred but well-defined spots, in order to make the base work less flat.

Paint animal coat in oil The work begins with the creation of the tuft and continues with the thicker hairs using hard brushes. The advantage of the fans is that the painting does not need to be totally united. According to the way they are made, shades will appear inside. We must start with synthetic hair to create volume and have realism. The more the oil painting is diluted, the more it will spread out and make a solid surface appear. Evacuating the pigment at the end will create pulled hairs. As it is a brush fan, the end of the hair will go in all directions by clinging. Instead of black, prussian blue allows you to shade and give volume to the tail. And to accentuate the effects, the brushes with hard bristles, in particular the pork silk, must be used dry. In the end, the work is not very complicated and the effects obtained are magnificent.
