Wild-at-Heart-Collection:


John R. A. Smith - Somerset Wildlife Artist


my art is therapy for me, and it helps me cope and focus my mind.




Below is a small humble sample of some of my artwork mostly from The Wild-at-Heart-Collection, although a few others have crept in over time.

These days on top of having to use an electric wheelchair for my mobility I am a


 24/7 carer for my 95 year old almost blind mother and have been also caring for my

 

two beautiful grandchildren full time and with them now living here.


_


In addition, I suffer 


from Osteoarthritis in both writs and hands.


As a result it has affected, or restricted my ability to continue 


accepting commission work


 with my passion


 for Wildlife Art.



Some of my work is now also used to create patterns and full 


embroidery or Cross-stitch Kits

Due to my mobility restriction and health issues, all my artwork these days is created by using photographs as an inspirational template as in part discussed in Marjolein Kruijt’s book – Drawing and Painting Animals with Expression – page 34.


On receiving a photograph, I often prefer to use artistic licence in preparing in my mind how I would like to create a work of art and then set about creating this using whatever material at hand. These could be anything from ink, pencil, pastels, computer, chalk to acrylic. Or most often my preferred medium is coloured pencils or a combination of part of all the above.


Each individual creation of art can then be used to create prints, greeting cards or patterns for embroider and cross-stitch. Once the template is created, the work of art can then be started and hopefully a representation of life is brought into each work of art or creation.


My artwork will later be offered for sale with between 50% and possibly up to 100% of the profit been given directly to a work of charity or within a local community.


In the past like such causes as providing funding towards clean pumped drinking water for a village in Africa. Educational material for a school in India. Helping a church in Glastonbury and another church in Martock in Somerset where they sought to serve the community, plus other good causes.

This way it cuts out the middle person and you know 50% or more of the profit from your purchase is used where it is most needed.



 

Paper used was Carson Mi-Teintes for Pastel 160g/m although I used Faber-Castel coloured Pencils and Caran d Ache for the white
