Clare Payne - Painted dogs are always so beautiful. I love the combination of blended tones and strong contrasts on their fur. Their markings are like an abstract artist’s canvas. I took my reference photo from a captive dog, in a breeding programme in England but I hope to one day see these beautiful animals in the wild.

Jackie Scott – Painted Dogs are just one of so many species that are endangered in Africa and my piece is a tribute to a few of these
Louise Ogilvy – Thistles
Margot Barker - inspired by the importance of the Wild dogs running free and joyful across Africa.
