Welcome to the website of Cheryl Day!
Cheryl specialises in british and african wildlife and animal portraiture. As a mostly self-taught artist Cheryl paints as a creative outlet for her passion for animals aiming to convey an emotional connection with each subject. Please browse through the gallery to see the range of subjects and the e-shop where there are art originals, limited edition giclee prints and greeting cards available to purchase.
Latest completed original: 'The Pack' produced in Pastel on Paper from a source photograph taken in Botswana of a pack of Hunting Dogs playing just after gorging on a meal.
From time to time, work in progress is also published in advance and images of work in progress are located in the 'news' page under 'what's on the drawing board'. At present I am working on a Cheetah portrait using source photography taken in Botswana and a new charcoal and coloured pencil painting of a Chimp from Chester Zoo.
Another recently completed pastel painting: 'Masai Mara Panthera Leo' based on a source photograph taken in the Masai Mara of a young group of males.
