Thanks for everyone who has supported me in the past.You guys make it possible for me to continue producing these paintings that is obviously very close to my heart.

Here is one of my latest works completed for the expo.

One of your best painting yet in my opinion. The detail on the fragmented head scales is awesome.

Well done man.

Mitton, I think you'd better book this one ;)

That is just awesome. I've seen these at a couple of expo's.
I also thought it was a photograph, till i saw the signature.
As a fellow artist, I can honestly say well done.
I'd much rather have that than a print.

Stunning...

Another absolutely incredible painting.
I always enjoy going snake keepers houses for the first time and recognising one of your paintings on the wall.
It seems sooner or later as a reptile keeper you will end up with an original Voigt.

Looking back,I have changed my style and composition many times.
Thanks for the kind words.

How long did it take for you to do this, if i may ask? I painted a table mountain picture over 3 canvases and it took over 2 weeks to dry (1 section) so i can imagine the amount of time and attention this piece can take! Do you have a website that you have where you sell your artwork? :)

Some of my works can take over 6 months to complete due to drying time,so I always
have around 10 or more works going at the same time to stay busy.The one above took 42 hours in total spread out over a few weeks.
So I had to wait for each layer to dry.I have a website http://www.colourfulcanvus.com or Colourful Canvus on Facebook.
Thanks.
