Pet Portraits & Wildlife Art by Steve Bretel BA
Specialising in pet portraits and wildlife art, I am an experienced professional using my skills as a commercial artist to create traditional watercolours with a contemporary edge. For many years I worked in London in publishing and advertising, but really missed the personal contact that comes from creating unique works of fine art for the public, and seeing the reaction from someone as they receive their painting. Several years ago, I headed north to follow my passion for being in wild and dramatic landscapes, and to concentrate on painting animal life both wild and domestic. My studio is set within the rolling countryside of rural Fife in the east of Scotland, and my paintings are displayed in galleries and private collections. I often attend shows, equestrian events and farmers markets, so if you are in the area please come along and say hello. You could even introduce me to your animal! See my blog for what’s going on, and where I may be exhibiting.
No matter if you are local or elsewhere in the world, and whether you would like a watercolour portrait of your pet dog, cat or painting of your horse or other animal, the first step in owning a stunning, unique artwork starts here. Get in touch now!
‘Steve has the rare ability, not just to paint an excellent likeness of an animal, but to capture its heart and soul’ (William G. Neill)
I also work digitally and in other styles. This is represented by the Association of Illustrators at AOI Portfolios.
