Dawn Siebel is creating Oil portraits of endangered species

Hello!  My name is Dawn Siebel and I paint oil portraits of endangered species. I meet all my subjects during extended zoo visits, and shoot all my reference images. At home at work, I am remembering the being I met while I paint. These are specific animals, not generic representations of their species.

Make no mistake. These are sentient beings.
My goal is to advocate for their rights through my paintings.
10% of all painting sales is donated to animal conservation in the wild.

I am now creating FOUR VIDEOS every month for Patreon:
1) This & That video is for everyone and can be about anything!
2) Animal Lover video uses still photography and video I shoot on my zoo research trips to create a mini movie about these endangered species I paint. This is the $4/monthly level.
3) Art Lover video tracks one painting from meeting the animal, through all the stages of the painting process to the finished portrait. This is the $5/monthly level.
4) Art Lover Expanded video takes the same painting but expands the video to 20-50 minutes, adding material and commentary, diving into the choices and techniques I use. This video is designed for those who are interested in the process of painting. I am a self-taught artist, and I encourage experimentation and attention. For me, painting is also about how we see. This is the $10/monthly level.

Please support me in the work I do painting and advocating for endangered species. Your patronage - whether modest or extravagant -  allows me to focus on my work and the animals in them. Patreon is about RELATIONSHIPS. Join me in this great community-building adventure.

Thank you!

I will buy a GoPro camera so I can shoot time lapse video while painting. Bet I'll find other uses for it too.
