Fascinating insight into the dynasty of painted wolves living pack life narrated once again by the brilliant David Attenborough. Vic Bearcroft has captured a selection of wolves in his paintings and drawings we currently are exhibiting only until January. Do you think wolves should be re-introduced to the wilds of Scotland? Maybe not as we I wouldn’t like to be their prey! Originals and prints available Grantham Tennis Club. We are open to the public 7 days – free parking. Pop down and have a look around.

ARTIST FEATURING IN ‘WOLVES CATS AND FANTASY’
Vic Bearcroft is a professional wildlife and pet portrait artist, who specialises in pastel on velour, but also works in pencil, watercolour, coloured pencil, charcoal, oil and acrylic media.
Having spent part of his childhood in Kenya, Vic has been drawing animals since he could hold a pencil. Being passionate about wildlife in general – particularly wolves – enables Vic to work with a large number of animal welfare and conservation organisations worldwide, donating prints, merchandise and funds.
“While I consider myself to be a wildlife artist, I prefer to paint close up intimate portraits of animals as individuals, rather than in landscape settings. My aim is to capture not only the likeness of the subject in my painting, but also the life and soul in its eyes. To me, eyes are the most important aspect of a portrait – human or animal. People tell me they can see my paintings come to life through the eyes.
My preferred medium is pastels on velour paper, which allows me to create both softness and detailed textures in my paintings.”
Winning best in show at his first ever wildlife art exhibition, Vic has gone on to win further awards for his work, including the prestigious ‘Endangered Species’ category in the 2012 BBC Wildlife Artist of the Year competition. Vic also has his own range of pastels and velour paper created by the SAA, and a highly popular DVD series, ‘Wildlife in Pastels’.
