Wildlife Illustrations

Illustrations by George West

The drawings and paintings in the slide show are a few examples of the thousands of illustrations I have produced over the past years and give you an idea of the types of images I can create. I have used the following media: Pencil, Pen-and-Ink, Scratchboard, Colored Pencil, Watercolor, and Computer Painting.

Using the computer to paint images allows me to greatly enlarge parts of the painting to add detail and to erase errors easily. I make a pencil sketch, scan it into PhotoShop, and add all the color and details using a stylus on a Wacom tablet.

I have about 3,000 images on my computer, but have placed over 1,200 of these images on a commercial web site (CanStockPhoto - see below). As of September 2015, there are 2,250 images on my section of the web site, of which over 1,200 are illustrations.

Where to find all the images?
You can see all of the images currently uploaded and order any you wish by signing on to: www.CanStockPhoto.com. Type a common name in the box "Search Portfolio" and click "search" to find a specific illustration or group of illustrations of the same bird.
