David Vincenzi, Coquitlam Member Since May 2009 Artist Statement I have always loved drawing and painting (realism) every since I can remember. In 2003 I became interested in wildlife art. It started at a local park; where I began photographing geese and ducks - photos that became my references for my first wildlife paintings. Pastel became my medium of choice. I loved the control and readiness pastel gave me. Soon I found interest in nearby zoos for my photo references. Acrylic paints became my new medium of choice; but just recently I finished a painting called ' Poised ' using quick dry oils - this is my new medium of choice and one I'll probably stick to for some time.
