Animal Alphabet

This is a self-driven project to paint animals for all the letters of the alphabet by the end of 2014!

It's all about learning how to paint, after years of reliance on computers. As you can see, the style is much more naturalistic than the digital designs shown in the gallery, although I have added some Photoshop patterns, textures and lettering to some of the pictures. It's a digital addiction. I like the depth of colour and texture from actually using paint on canvas, although there have been some disasters - and when it goes terribly wrong, you can't just return to the earlier version you've saved on file...But some accidents are happy ones, and some pictures have turned out better than others. It's a learning process!
