View Full Version : Favourite wildlife artist

08-24-2000, 04:26 PM
Some of the artists I like (a few I have rubbed shoulders with thru Wild Wings) Gary Moss, as well as David Maass, Lamb, Idol, Sousino...

Enjoy Jim Lambs plein air landscapes, known for his frolicking puppy prints...

Like Nancy Glaziers work for her use of color, sense of drama and lighting, and brushwork.

The greats such as Carl Rungius, Bob Kuhn...

Guy Cohleach...for his bold brushwork, and application of thick paint to suggest action and drama. And a number of lesser knowns that I think have some pretty decent work.

Why not share a few of your favorites?? :wave:

Bateman and Moss are two of my favorites, but a third has captured my attention in the past year. He is a a recent member of wc due to my prodding, bear claw aka darrell. His detailed work and compositions really pull me into the piece.

Who do you like?My personal favorites are much the same as yours. Lately I've really started to appreciate Terry Isaac. Got a couple of his books and learned a ton. I also really like Hunt. By the way, Guy Coleach has a web site at www.guysart.com. (http://www.guysart.com.) It's worth looking at.

My favourite would have to be Jason Morgan, he does amazing paintings and demos




04-21-2008, 08:23 PM
Not sure I have an outright fav yet but I really like Stephen Jesic's (http://www.natureartists.com/artists/artist_artwork.asp?ArtistID=1279) work.

There are quite a few artists here at this site thats work im quite fond of too.

Edit: I just realised how old this thread is :eek:

04-21-2008, 10:22 PM
Can't really choose one, but Seerey Lesterhttp://www.seerey-lester.com is one I learn from, love his light, compositions and ability to create mood, then for birds I'm in a swoon over Chris Bacon http://www.chrisbacon.com/ again for light and mood...Guess that draws me personally, more than perfect rendering.

Hope others post, this was a good one to dig up Pazza:)

Bateman, Seerey-Lester and Carl Brenders first got me interested in wildlife art, but I'd have to say Bob Kuhn is my all-time favorite.

I also greatly admire Lesley Harrison and Jan Martin McGuire, and I've recently discovered another female artist whose work I love -- Debbie Edgers Sturges
(www.dedgerssturges.com). Her bold use of color just blows me away.

04-21-2008, 10:47 PM
David Maass and Rosemary Millette .....among others!:thumbsup:

04-22-2008, 12:24 AM
Terry Isaac (just had the workshop with him this weekend), Carl Brenders, Daniel Smith, Greg Beecham, John Banovich, Lee Kromschroeder, Robert Bateman, Rod Frederick, Alan Hunt, Stephen Townsend, Raymond Harris Ching, Nancy Howe, Robert Steiner...would be among my top picks!

04-22-2008, 06:12 AM
There's a few on here that I really love.

I'll mention four that don't tend to post often but do occasionally regale us with their work
Rebecca Latham - amazing miniatures, and her mum and sister are equally amazing

Wes Seigrist - also amazing miniatures, and his wife Rachelle is also unbelievable

Jason Morgan as someone has already mentioned

Eric Wilson, outstanding.

If anyone is into portraits, check this guy out - he'll blow your mind Stephen Bennett (http://theportraitpainter.com/)

Bob Kuhn, Eric Wilson, Larry Seiler, Partrick Hedges, Bateman, Rebecca Latham, Not necessarily
in that order...I have other favorites not in the animal/wildlife venue though.
My all time favoite artist is NC Wyeth..but his grandson Jamie Wyeth is really great too! I like Andrew just not as well as the other two.

So many wildlife artists I never knew of before this thread looking through the works is so inspiring.

Thinking back to the old school days when we had to do assignments on certain artist. Most of them I really just didnít find interesting I donít think it was their work so much as the subjects none did wildlife. Those assignments would have been so much easier if they could have been done on wildlife artists.

04-24-2008, 09:14 AM
Again so many amazing artists who's work I could admire forever!! :)....but four of my favourites that come to mind are

Eric Wilson (http://www.ericwilsonwildlifeart.com)

Michael Jackson (http://www.michael-jackson.co.uk)

and again Seerey-Lester and Carl Brenders


04-24-2008, 09:35 AM
Julie...now I KNOW that you know that Michael Jackson really had me stumped until I clicked on your link :lol: :lol:

As so many of my favorites actually reside right here at WC, I won't even begin to list them because surely someone will be missed. But I must say...I do have a whole new respect for Michael Jackson :lol:

04-24-2008, 11:46 AM
Ok Mitch! :rolleyes:.....why d'ya think I posted the link!!!..... just in case you all thought I'd read it wrong!!! :lol:...hope I didn't disappoint you!!!! :lol:


04-24-2008, 01:07 PM
I have so many favourite wildlife artists, it would be hard to choose. But top on my list is Jason Morgan and the late Simon Combes. David Shepherd, Eric Wilson, Bateman... the list is endless.

04-24-2008, 01:34 PM
I have to echo all the list of favorite artists everyone here has already mentioned, including all the wonderful members of WC! I'd like to express at this time how much I appreciate the expertise I have had the privilege to have access to since joining this wonderful community! Being a part of WC! and particularly the A&W forum has made me a better (and more committed) artist. You are all my favorites! :)

Here's another artist I really like that some of you may or may not be familiar with: http://web.mac.com/kevinlafond/Site_1/Home.html

My favourite wildlife artists are William Silvers (http://www.williamsilvers.com/) and Misti Hope Wudtke (http://www.mistique.com/). I own one big painting from William Silvers and nearly a dozen from Misti Hope Wudtke. I will check your links in this thread, but I have seen work from many artists and those two are my favourites.

The biggest strength of William Silvers is the compositional perfect placement of the animal in a very reduced, sometimes even abstract, while still realistic looking, background. Misti's colorful and technically perfect watercolors of the wildlife of rural Wisconsin are especially important to me since they resemble the nature around my grandmother's house here in Germany.

Here's one I forgot to mention and one probably 90% of people have never heard of - Paul Augustinus (http://www.paulaugustinus.com/) he is a real master and without a doubt one of the greatest wildlife artists around today, his dramatic paintings are absolutely AWESOME.

04-27-2008, 08:17 AM
Thanks for adding Paul to the list Jason! All I can say is WOW!!!!! This guy is phenomenal. I just love his light! Too cool
