"My art is a colourful affair....... hyper realism is not my aim!
I strive to capture the character.......the feeling and the mood!"
Wiltshire based pet portraits, wildlife and more in colourpencil and pastel. My name is Lynda and I live in this beautiful part of England with my husband Nick, our boxer dog Granville and 2 rescue cats, Clarence and Maisie Jo.
I always enjoyed drawing as a child and loved my art classes at school but never went any further than 'O' levels. As happens with many people, I left school, work and life took over, and I didn't start drawing again for many years!
Then, in 2017, I picked up a colour pencil and started drawing. I practised and gained skills by entering online challenges through magazines and websites. I was drawn by my love of animals to pet portraits and animals although my interests are varied and growing.
I work primarily in Colour Pencil and Pastel although I also use Watercolour and Gouache occasionally.
