  The Wildlife Art of David Stribbling

 

Update 5th August 2013

Over the past year or so I have introduced a looser, expressive style to some of my paintings and I now work in these two different but distinctive styles.

Just to clarify, when working on commissions it will always be the detailed style that I have been known for for over 25 years unless requested otherwise.

 

 

Commissions.

I welcome enquiries about commissions to paint virtually any subject. If you have a favorite animal, pet or particular scene from your own travels that you have in mind just email me your photos for a quote. Also please take a look at my original paintings archive page.

I also have an extensive image reference library so if you have a particular painting in mind just let me know and I will produce a few thumbnail sketches to base the final painting on. Once you have decided, the finished painting is ready around 3 weeks later.

I give an unconditional guarantee in that you are not obliged to buy the finished painting unless you are completely happy with it. Furthermore you may return it for any reason within 30 days for a full refund including shipping costs. I give this guarantee in the knowledge that I've never actually been asked to honour it in the last 25 years. However the guarantee remains!

 

 

 

luna

17th July 2004: This is Luna, my brother Michael's dog, on the cliffs near Land's End, Cornwall. The painting is from reference photos I took myself.

Original oil on canvas, size 12x16" NFS

If you would like to commission an oil painting of your pet, all you need to do is send me some clear, high resolution photographs either by email or post . It is important to have a good quality photograph so that I am able to see the detail in the animal's features and therefore acheive the best results.

Please e-mail for further details of pet portraits and other commissions.

Here is an example of a recent commission:

The client asked for an oil painting of a group, or pair, of African Elephants and to include at least one baby. Size 16x20 .

I emailed 3 very rough thumbnail sketches:

The client chose sketch number one of the elephant family at a waterhole.

This is the final painting, original oil on canvas, size 16x20"


 

For another recent commission I was asked to paint a Siberian Tiger in full length pose, size 18x24". These were the intial sketches:

The client liked sketch 2 the best with the tiger laying down in the grass.

The final painting was completed 2 weeks later.
