Did you know…?tiger hand small1 Home

There are around 37 species of wild cats in the world.  The Siberian or Amur Tiger is the largest, measuring up to 40″ to the shoulder and weighing up to a record 384kg.  The smallest wild cat is said to be the black footed cat, weighing around 1.2kg and only about 8 inches tall to the shoulder.  Most people are familiar with the tiger, lion, leopard, cheetah and jaguar, but too few are aware of the fact that these are ALL threatened species and sadly some cats have already become extinct, never to be seen again in the wild or in captivity.

About Soft Pastels

pastels HomePastel is a drawing medium in the form of a stick similar to a coloured chalk. They can also be in the form of a pencil.  They are dry, made with pure powdered pigment held together by a binder and are arguably the most permanent of all painting mediums.  Cave drawings of wild animals and hunting scenes from 30,000 years ago were similarly painted with natural pigments such as those from plants, animal blood, sap – some of these are still visible and holding their colour today!  Pastel as we know it was first mentioned by Leonardo Da Vinci in 1495 and was favoured by famous artists including Degas and Whistler.

Its popularity has continued to grow and grow, and some of the very finest Wildlife Art is now painted in pastel because it is the ‘magic wand’ with which a good artist can re-create the softness and depth of fur, the texture and tone of skin and the luminosity of a pair of living eyes.

Painting Big Cats

Look out for the new publication by Kat Davies.  This excellent concise trouble-shooting guide to painting big cats will be published later this year.  Aspiring artists young and old will benefit from the Wildlife Art instruction in this illustrated and informative book providing an insight into big cats including tigers, lions and snowleopards and be guided towards success in painting these magnificent animals.  This website will be the first to announce the release date of the book, so check back for more information or send a message with your name and address to reserve your copy.

Not just cute and furry

Kat was delighted to spend some time with bearded dragons, tarantulas and snakes recently.  She found their company very relaxing and having spent far less time with reptiles than big cats, she was fascinated to learn more about them and have first hand experience handling them and examining them ‘up close and personal’.  Her favourites were the boa constrictors, (see below, Kat with a young male boa constrictor) which display such beautiful markings, at times very reminiscent of leopard or jaguar markings.  ‘When the snake was wrapped around my neck it felt surprisingly strong, but all the same it was more like an embrace – not at all menacing.  When he reaches full maturity and a length of around 14 feet, however, I think it’s an embrace I’d rather forgo in favour of something a little less intimate!’  This visit also provided the inspiration for future animal paintings including a spectacled caiman crocodile.

    I’ve been enjoying your posts on WC, and followed your signature link to your lovely website.
    I adore your work, and see that you are truly a wonderful soul, deeply connected to the spirit of the animals you are called to bring to life in your paintings.
    If I weren’t in another country, I’d certainly be signing up for your workshops.. Hopefully one day there may be an online video workshop or webinar? Well, a girl can hope..
    I’m also very excited to see that you have a book about to be published and wanted to say congratulations! And I’m very much looking forward to purchasing a copy once it is available.
    ~Thanks for sharing your lovely gifts with us all,
    Blessings, Noreen

    Interested to read about your visit with the reptiles Kat – I would love to see you paint a snake picture as it is rare that you get a good, realistic painting. I think you would do a fantastic job, and as a Royal Python owner, I think that should be your first port of call! Wonderful work Kat.
