Watercolour wildlife blog by Paul Hopkinson, The Devon Artist

Hello There!

Welcome to my website, I’m Paul Hopkinson, also known as The Devon Artist.  No prizes for guessing where I live and what I do!  I started drawing when I was knee-high to a grasshopper, but I didn’t pick up my first brush until the age of twelve. This was when I first started to paint in oils and that is where it all began.

For many years I worked on watercolour, oil, acrylic and graphite commissions and have painted portraits, landscapes and also animals.  I now paint as a full time artist and have nearly 40 years of experience.  When I am asked what would be my preferred subject, I would say without a doubt wildlife.  I love to get the life within the eyes of my detailed and realistic paintings.  Do check out my shop for a selection of my latest pieces.

My focus these days is on the teaching of my style and techniques.  I really do feel that I have found my niche.  I absolutely love teaching others and find it really rewarding to see the progress people make as they work on the tutorial projects.  

Are you looking to paint realistic wildlife in watercolour?  I would love to welcome you on board and join with you on your watercolour journey.
