Art From The Wilds




19th century painters such as Edward Landseer and Carl Rungus and sculptors Rembrandt Bugatti and Isadore Bonheur all worked from life. Animals were their focus, whether in zoos or in the wild. Bugatti would destroy any work that he did not finish by the end of each day. Even under those strict conditions he completed 60 sculptures in a year.


This year I will get a chance to train with Rich Loffler, a present day sculptor who also works from life. This sort of approach required discipline and efficient speed. I am looking forward to bringing a new level of work to wildlife, as well as the sporting art.
