New mini-exhibition started

Following on from the success of my mini-exhibition last year at Titchfield Haven National nature reserve i was asked back again this year with an even longer show which runs from today untill 25th november.I will mostly be featuring new print releases of british wildlife in keeping with the location and a smattering of original works as and when they become available.The photo is of my latest print release 'Kingfisher' all framed up and ready to be transported to the venue.i have issued a number of my bird drawings and this kingfisher oil painting as limited editions to coincide with the shows opening.The show is housed within the visitor centre,to which there is free admission so if your'e in the area why not pop along.the images on display will be changing regularly throughout the shows duration.i have hung many of the prints unframed but mounted and wrapped to keep them as affordable as possible for the many visitors to the reserve.

new tiger oil painting

this is one of two paintings currently on the easel and quite obviously is a little study piece of a tiger cub.ive progressed sufficiently to be confident that i will actually finish this one at some point although i'm still dreadfully slow with the oils and as you can see there is much to be done here but its shaping up nicely.

Winter Barn owl 17" x 10" oil on board

I'm calling this one complete as i'm happy with the image as it stands and dont want to tinker with it any more.learned a lot about the medium producing this which is always a good thing.

New Barn owl oil in progress

This is my latest oil painting project.returning to the theme of a winter barn owl once more but this time an oil rather than graphite version.this is the first time ive posted a oil in progress as i'm very much a learner and i hope it doesn't jinx the final outcome.as you can see here i have more or less completed the underpainting and once the oils have dried i will proceed with the topcoat of fine detailing oil.
