Tony Forrest Wildlife Art

My main speciality is producing oil paintings of the natural world. The world's wildlife serve as a true reminder of how wonderful but also how fragile our planet is. We owe it to our children to look after it. We do not own it, but are custodians for future generations. I hope that my paintings serve as a reminder that the wildlife with which we share this planet is in danger of being lost for ever unless we all appreciate it take positive steps to conserve it.
TRIBUTE TO DAVID SHEPHERD
I have just heard the sad news that we have lost a shining light in the wildlife art and conservation world. My hero and life-time inspiration died today from Parkinson's Disease. David Shepherd is the only reason I have painted wildlife for the past 30 years. I discovered his work whilst at college when I was about 18 years old and he has been a massive inspiration to me ever since. David was a true conservationist who really cared about wildlife and especially his beloved "Jumbos". I am very saddened by his passing and my heart goes out to his family. A real hero who did so much for our precious natural world. David will live on in my memories and I thank him for doing everything he did for wildlife.

PAINT AND DRAW MAGAZINE WORKSHOP
The February 2017 issue of Paint And Draw magazine had a workshop written by me showing you how I paint a small cheetah canvas. I made a one hour video of the whole process which you can still see. Click this link: https://youtu.be/dkVufijC2BY
