BCAF is delighterd to be working once again with Hinckley & District Society of Arts to bring you this two hour live demonstration by the talented and prolific artist Vic Bearcroft.
Vic is a professional wildlife and pet portrait artist, who specialises in pastel on velour, but also works in pencil, watercolour, coloured pencil, charcoal, oil and acrylic media.
Having spent part of his childhood in Kenya, Vic has been drawing animals since he could hold a pencil. Being passionate about wildlife in general - particularly wolves - enables Vic to work with a large number of animal welfare and conservation organisations worldwide, donating prints, merchandise and funds.
“While I consider myself to be a wildlife artist, I prefer to paint close up intimate portraits of animals as individuals, rather than in landscape settings. My aim is to capture not only the likeness of the subject in my painting, but also the life and soul in its eyes. To me, eyes are the most important aspect of a portrait – human or animal. People tell me they can see my paintings come to life through the eyes.
"My preferred medium is pastels on velour paper, which allows me to create both softness and detailed textures in my paintings.”
‘Creativity is my passion. I love to explore different mediums and styles, from sketching to painting, writing and illustrating, and even photography. I never tire of which, above all, is my constant source of inspiration.’
Tonight's demonstration is entitled "Wildlife in Pastels"
