Copperfield Art

Animal portraits


I used coloured pencils as a child but had never given them a thought as an adult until I saw a wonderful portrait done by a friend of mine in America - it inspired me to have a go.  Whilst doing some gardening I discovered quite a gathering of snails behind an old wooden trough - as I was moving them I realised how pretty their shells were and decided to make one of them the subject of my first coloured pencil drawing.
