Nel van Wijngaarden (1952) autodidact. Animal Art Nel van Wijngaarden.
From my childhood until at present there always were animals in my neighbourhood. Dogs and cats. I love animals, all kind of animals. I can't imagine a life without animals. I always feel happiness when I see wagging dogtails.
In 1991 I serious started te draw and paint animals. I tested various materials. My favourite material are pieces of chalk. All paintings showed on this site are made with this material.
And I practised a lot to become the professional as I am now: specialized in realistic Animal Art. In commission I make all kind of portraits.
This site shows you various possibilities for ordering a portrait of your pet(s). I always try to capture the uniqueness of an animal. Especially the expression in the eyes is important to immortalize. Every animal is unique!
