These beautiful illustrations of woodland wildlife are simply serene

If you read down this article today, you’re sure of a big surprise. As you’ll go down to the woods today, and see creatures in many a painted guise.

We recently stumbled upon this amazing portfolio of forest-animal artwork, and simply had to ask the artist if they’d be willing to let us feature them on Love Nature.

Rade Tepavčević, a 22-year-old Academy of Arts student from Vrbas, a small town in Vojvodina, Serbia, was more than happy to oblige.

‘Animals have always been a part of my life,’ he explains, ‘and because of this, they were always my main inspiration. I would go out and play with my dogs and that would be enough to get new ideas for my illustrations.’

‘My biggest challenge is to capture the character of a specific animal, because, like people, they are all different. That’s why I never succeeded in capturing the character of my dog, he never seems to cooperate.’

Scroll on for a sweet visual treat of some of woodland’s most wonderful creatures.
