When Sally Walsh isn't meeting animals, she paints their portraits using watercolor. Her unique style is colorful, drippy, and incredibly detailed, so you can spend quite some time analyzing each one.

"Being one of those crazy animal lover peoples – a lot of my art includes animals and birds," says Sally. "I usually create my wildlife art directly from my own experiences and encounters with animals locally & abroad – I can often be found <...> observing elephants on the African plains, sketching and photographing puffins on a Scottish Isle, inching closer to unsuspecting wild zebra in Kenya and making friends with Scottish highland cattle."

"My watercolor style is bright, loose, drippy and gestural with realistically rendered pockets of detail that breath life, vitality and playfulness into my creations," says the Australia-based artist.
