I’ve always enjoyed painting animals, and pigs have been a particular favourite. I don’t know exactly why this is but there’s something about their bulk, the blotchy pattern on their skin, the large expanse of delicate floppy ear, and that unbelievable spiral corkscrew tail that draws me in.
There’s also somethings very exciting about all those amazing juxtaposed textures, straw, muddy walls, grain wood. Then, of course, there are the piglets…
They really are beautiful in their own way and if any one out there would like me to paint you pig, please get in touch!
