Original Watercolour Otter Painting – Realistic Fine Art

Otters are an elusive mammal that feeds on fish, amphibians, waterbirds and crustaceans.  They live on rivers, along the coast and around wetlands.  Living for between 5 and 10 years they can weigh up to 8kg.  Their webbed feet and dense fur enables them to feel very at home in the water.  They can even close their ears and nose under the water – ideal for underwater swimming.  They maintain a huge territory, usually around 11 miles wide but can be up to 25….that’s definitely a lot of swimming!

Packaging & Materials
I have used an excellent quality watercolour paper and the finest of brushes to produce the tiny details which bring this painting to life.

The painting will be carefully wrapped in cellophane and protected with additional packing.  Likewise I aim for my originals to arrive with you in the same condition that they left me.  I use the Royal Mail’s ‘Signed for Next Day’ or ‘International Tracked’ service.

A bit about me…

I love to capture the life within my paintings and also enjoy working with the watercolour medium to create fine detail.  I am continually adding to my portfolio and draw inspiration from amazing photographers and also the stunning North Devon environment.

Do you want to create your own original watercolour otter painting?  Maybe take a look at becoming a member of my online school.  I feel that I have found my niche and I absolutely love teaching others.  Firstly, I find it extremely rewarding to be able to see the progress my students make.  Secondly I enjoy being able to interact directly with fellow wildlife artists.  Thirdly and most importantly I am able to share my love of the watercolour medium.  So take a look on YouTube or become a member and you may see this painting being created or learn how to paint your own version.
