Internationally acclaimed animal portrait artist Ann Seward has portraits and wildlife prints hanging in homes worldwide. Painting came naturally to Ann. In1974 her first attempt at portrait painting was triggered by a need to fill a gap on her cottage wall, and so she borrowed her father's watercolour box. The resulting painting of a stallion was quickly purchased by a friend, as was the painting she did to replace this.
Commission A Portrait
A Timeless Tribute
Personally meeting each subject, wherever possible, I spend some time discussing the portrait and its framing with you. I take notes on colouring, markings, blemishes, etc. followed by a set of photographs. Having the unique ability of recognising the animals' characters, I am able to project them into my detailed watercolour portraits.
However, if a personal meeting is not possible, I am able to work from a set of good photographs, thus enabling me to ascertain the detail and character to project into the portrait
By building up thousands of fine brushstrokes, I capture the tactile depth of the coat and individual features, making each and every portrait an authentic, accurate and totally lifelike evocation of the subject, appearing alive to you.
Each portrait takes up to three weeks to complete.
