The animal lovers among you will be glad to become acquainted with the interesting work of a young French artist called Delphine Dion. She has been a freelance illustrator for three years now and her portfolio consists of numerous adorable watercolor portraits of animals.
Dion posted her art on Bored Panda and shared that she’s always been interested in nature and animals and that’s why she decided to study ecology. Drawing has been her hobby ever since she was a little girl, although she claims she was never really very good at it.
Nevertheless, everything changed when she became more serious about drawing and painting and discovered watercolor. Dion started posting her artwork online and decided to turn this into a business when she got positive feedback. Now she sells her watercolor pet portraits worldwide.
“For me, this is the perfect job, but the thing I love most about it is when people see their pet’s portrait for the first time, and it makes them so happy,” the artist said.
“My style has evolved throughout these years to achieve what I realize today: semi-realistic illustrations in a soft and rounded style full of life thanks to bright colors, combining watercolors and colored pencils, always linked to the animal world and Nature.”
