The following work by Carl Whitfield has been previously exhibited by John Noott Galleries and is now in private collections world wide.

Born in Lancashire in 1958, Carl Whitfield left school to pursue a career in commercial management but after some seven years he returned to his first love, painting, and decided to make it his life’s work. Having undertaken no formal training, he slowly studied wildlife and farm animals, spending the next few years practising and perfecting his technique. His main influences were the eminent English artists Grimshaw, Hunt and Herring.

Carl Whitfield now paints well-observed traditional farmyard scenes and wildlife in close detail and vibrant tones, specialising in miniaturist paintings in oils. His reputation developed as the leading painter of chickens in the country, and he soon added ducks, mice, badgers, red squirrels, foxes, hedgehogs, butterflies and other countryside creatures to his repertoire. He also paints still life of a stunning three-dimensional quality. The hallmark of Carl Whitfield's work is the particularly fine details and intense rich colours, resulting in a painting of rare quality, depth and great charm. His work is in an increasing number of collections both in the UK and around the world.
