Images from the Carl Brenders 2011 Calendar
Carl Brenders (born 1937) is a naturalist and painter, born in Belgium. The painter is most famous for his detailed and life-like paintings of wildlife.
Some of the artist’s accomplishments include illustrations of wildlife for The Secret Life of Animals, a book series, and being named the 24th Master Artist at the 2002 Birds in Art Exhibition at Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum in Wausau, Wisconsin. His art is the subject of the books, Wildlife: The Nature Paintings of Carl Brenders, Song of Creation, and Pride of Place: The Art of Carl Brenders.
The wildlife images of Brenders’ art are first created from pencil sketches; from these sketches his mixed media paintings of watercolor and gouache are completed with a technique he has developed during the last 25 years. His paintings, which encompass every intricacy of nature, devote equal attention to the detail of the wildlife subject and its habitat as well as to the mood created by the light.
Brenders’ art enjoys international acclaim. He is widely collected in North America, France, Germany, Japan, Spain, Holland, Argentina and in his native Belgium. Brenders combines his dreams, his senses, his imagination and his strict attention to anatomical perfection to make his paintings. more
