Stephen Ainsworth is a self taught artist living on the South coast of England in Dorset. He has a passion for nature and wildlife and when he is not in his studio, likes to spend as much time as possible outdoors, watching wildlife, hiking, fishing and kayaking.
Stephen specializes in realism and loves to capture every nuance and detail. He works in oil, pastel and watercolour but his favourite medium is the humble pencil, where he aims to push its capabilities in every piece. He is captivated by the play of light in his subject matter,
to really move beyond a drawing or painting and capture the soul in his work.
