Original Contemporary Fine Art by Debra Babcock
I am a freelance Contempary Artist that began drawing at a very early age. Dogs, cats, horses and a few other animals were my main subjects as they were my constant fascination. It wasn't until art classes in high school that I learned to use color which opened up a new world of possibilities. I've done Charcoal and pastel portraits but I now mostly work with acrylics in bringing my chosen images to life.
I’m especially fond of depicting animals and nature. Capturing the essence and likeness of an animal or someone’s beloved pet is very rewarding to me. I’ve drawn and painted commissioned pet portraits for the last several years. I also enjoy painting flowers, and close-ups of interesting subjects. I often take photos to capture images in different lighting situations. Whether working from real life or using photos for resource material, continuing to learn and improve my craft is my goal.
In my creative process, I will usually work from a photograph. It's important to have good picture so I can readily see the subjects true colors. I use whatever techniques and materials I think will best bring about the effect I want. Sometimes it’s the strong contrast between light and shadow that I want to focus on. I enjoy bringing out the many shifts in color and value that result from strong light illuminating forms. Other times, I may be drawn to the mood I feel the subject evokes. The amount of details in my work also varies. Sometimes I strive for a very realistic portrayal; other times I use a more Impressionist approach. For me, the joy of making art is in the challenge of using composition, shape, and color to bring about an interesting or perhaps dramatic painting. The process of painting is very gratifying to me and I like to think that my images are uplifting, because that is what attracts me to art. It’s my hope that something about my art connects with those who view it!
I live in the beautiful Tennessee valley with my husband, two dogs and five acres. I'm always planting and growing different kinds of trees and plants. This way, I have plenty of subject matter to inspire me. Along with my great family and friends, my Toy Poodle "Tiffany" and my Yorkshire Terrier "Travis" continually inspire me.
Thanks for your interest in my art!

* Email me a picture of the subject you would like for me to paint. I will need to know what size canvas your would like. I often use Professional Canvas Artist Sheets. The sheets allow the painting to be put in a traditional frame. Or you can request stretched Canvas. A stretched canvas is already on a wood frame and can be hung by itself or with a frame. Once we have determined Canvas, Canvas size, subject & composition, I will give you the cost of the painting, you are then ready to place your order.
* Click on the amount we discussed and then finish by paying. That's it!
When ordering a commissioned painting, please allow 2 - 3 weeks for completion. Depending on the size and the composition..it can take a little longer but that's not usually the case.
