The plight of Rhino's in our world today sickens me to the very core and with this drawing I hope to touch the heart of the viewer and encourage awareness of the very real possibility of the extinction of the species.

After a visit last week to Titchfield Haven NNR where I was lucky enough to see plenty of Snipe at close quarters I decided to paint a small study with a view to a larger piece to follow in oils if I could get a grip on the colours and cryptic plumage.This is the completed study,which I'm very pleased with and hopefully a larger snipe painting will follow in the not too distant future.

On a cold crisp January day I visited the marshes on the outskirts of Portsmouth and with camera in hand walked the seawall separating the marshes from Langstone harbour getting views of waders and other seabirds on both the freshwater marsh on one side of the wall and the mudflats of langstone harbour on the other.This curlew was busy feeding amongst the seaweed and seagrass at low tide on the mudflats and was quite close to me affording me unusually great views.After the success of my last avocet oil sketch which was so well received and sold almost immediately I thought I would approach this subject in the same loose manner and just see where it led me.

This young male was hunting with his mother as they were not part of a pride and as you can see from his flawless features he still hadn't gone into battle for a pride of his own as he wasn't fully mature as yet.
The pair formed an impressive hunting team and when I encountered them they were hunkered down in the heat of the day with very full bellies from a successful hunt the night before.

I thought I'd have a go at producing a little oil sketch from some of my references obtained at Titchfield Haven NNR of an Avocet and chick.Its all been completed in one layer of paint over two sessions and I have to say that I'm really pleased,not only with the results but also with the painting process itself which I found very liberating after my usual heavily-worked pieces.

The subject of the painting is very close to my heart as this is charlotte a little vixen that visits my studio daily for a bite to eat and seems to like hanging out with me.I thought attempting this little oil portrait might fire up my imagination and because its relatively simple it allowed me to get back to grips with oil paints.It seems to have done the trick and I now have lots of ideas for some smaller paintings,which are the sort I prefer.
