I thought my regular readers might like to see an example of one of my latest print releases.This limited edition print of my oil painting Red Fox has been bonded to board and then after hand signing and numbering by me has been hand varnished to replicate the original oil on board.At present i have published two oil paintings 'Red Fox' and 'Caracal portait' both are available either unframed as the above images or ready framed in beautiful mouldings which can be viewed on my website http://www.clivemeredithart.weebly.com/ The prints are strictly limited to 195 copies + 20 artists proofs worldwide.Look out for future releases of further oil paintings.
South coast based Clive Meredith is an entirely self-taught artist and has been working professionally since 1993 specialising in detailed portrayals of wildlife from both Britain and abroad. Clive's initial interest in wildlife and the countryside was fostered in his early years, brought up the son of a dairy farmer, and spending hours outside in the Shropshire countryside birdwatching and larking about on the river Severn and its streams in his hometown of Shrewsbury. Working in both graphite pencil and oils,observation is vital to Clive's working practice.Each drawing or painting reveals meticulous attention to detail,achievable only by hours spent in the field observing and photographing subjects in their natural habitat.As a result Clive has become renowned for the stunning realism of his images and an incredibly assured ability to inject real life and character into his works. His art has been extensively published with over 50 limited edition releases to date and can be found in galleries throughout the uk and beyond. In 2010 Clive was named Wildlife Artist of the Year by Wildscape magazine after winning the prestigious annual competition with his image 'The Egret pool' and appeared as a finalist in the DSWF Wildlife Artist of the Year 2010,2012 and 2013 with works exhibited at The Mall Galleries in London. Clive is a member of the Pencil Art Society and the RSPB.
