Penelope is an Artist with SouthAfricanArtists.com based in South Africa.
I focus on experimentation with a variety of subject matter and mediums.
Any subject matter is exciting, from animals to insects to life- like portraits in a variety of styles and colours.
If you are passionate about the African bush you might enjoy my series of nature paintings. The backgrounds are modern and textured, either with thick paint or expressive brushstrokes, or a combination of both. Much focus is required to render the anatomy precisely, and to capture unique charcteristics of South African Wildlife. I love to push the boundries of oil paint application to achieve organic-looking results which capture the essence of the bush. I am privelledged to gain much knowledge from my father, Geoff Hunter, an inspiring artist dedicated to Wildlife painting.
