Ringneck Pheasant

How to Buy, General Information

Ringneck Pheasants are a common gamebird in England, and as such, during certain times of year, a virtually constant presence in woodlands, fields, and along country roads. They are not native to the UK, originally hailing from Asia and a few areas of Europe such as the northern foothills of the Caucasus and Balkans. Just as in America, where they were also introduced for food and sport, these highly adaptable birds have spread out to become a fully integrated part of the rural landscape.

I’ve seen pheasants many times during my travels to the UK, but only recently had an encounter with some especially “unbothered” birds while visiting a friend in Dorchester. Several beautiful males, including this one, strutted about on bright green lawns, seemingly unbothered by my presence. If I didn’t know better, I would swear they were posing for me, so assured were they in their fine plumage that an artist such as myself would have simply have no choice but to paint them. They were, of course, correct!

Welcome to the online home for artwork by Andrew Denman, a California –based, internationally recognized, award-winning contemporary wildlife artist.

His clear voice, unique vision, and commitment to constant artistic experimentation have positioned him on the forefront of an artistic vanguard of the best contemporary wildlife and animal painters working today.
