DAVID SHEPHERD | Out on the Plains, Painted in 1983
  • DAVID SHEPHERD | Out on the Plains, Painted in 1983


    Oil on Canvas

    43 x 77 cms / 16½" x 30¼"


    David Shepherd's original oil painting depicts two majestic male lions in the African bush. David’s technique of combining photorealism with his broad impressionist style and his impeccably accurate palette, instantly strikes a chord with the viewer, but above all it is his love of the wildlife that shines through in his original oil paintings, creating an instant empathy for them with his audience.

    • David Shepherd is regarded by many as being the worlds leading wildlife artist. He started his artistic career as an aviation artist, and an early commission for the RAF took him to Kenya where David painted his first wildlife subject and he never looked back.


      David's love of wildlife is apparent in all aspects of his life. In 1984 he established the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation to fund vital enforcement and community projects that protect wildlife survival in the natural habitat, and has since received many conservationist awards including an OBE.


      David's distinctive style stems from a personal attachment with the animals of Kenya. His impasto brushwork in the foreground contrasted with the detailed and intricate depiction of the wild animals highlights the details of the rich African terrain and the fragility of the animals within.
