Bev Doolittle is an American artist who paints scenes of the American West, featuring Native American life, wild animals, horses, and landscapes. She was born in 1947 and specializes in watercolors. Realistic Western art has traditionally been dominated by oil painting but Bev Doolittle changed all of that by bringing in watercolors and gaining respect for this technique from many collectors of Western Art.

Not only has she changed the type of paint being used, but she also has a very unique method that she uses with her paintings. She paints in a way called a camoufage technique which means that her paintings can be see in more than one way. Her most famous and impressive work in this respect is a twelve set collection of paintings of dark brown horses set against light brown rocks and white snow.

Bev Doolittle has also coauthored and illustrated several books about the plight of Native Americans, wild animals and environmental issues. Enjoy some of her paintings shown below.

    Does anyone know if the Native Americans depicted in works such as "Two Horses" are from a specific tribe/nation?
