My wildlife art

Hi everyone!

Don't know if anyone will remember me, but a couple of years ago (i believe i last posted when i was around 13) I started a thread on the wildlife art forum as 'Nature lover'. Unfortunately I haven't been on so long i forgot my password, and rather than trying to retrieve it decided I'd prefer a new account anyway.

I'm now 15 and I draw/paint almost every day now! And decided i'd benefit again from the opinions of fellow artists. I've really started to get a liking for acrylics now. Below are some recent artworks!

any feedback appreciated

Oh yes, the shags and the fox are very strong indeed, if you're only 15 now you'll be a big name quite soon, hope you'll stick around and show us more.

Brilliant, for me field sketching is fundamental to creating pictures, you find your way around the birds and you open your eyes more. Please keep at this, this is very promising work - the moorhen is a gem!

Hi Amy - welcome back!! These are very nice indeed - please keep looking at the 'common' birds and continue in this approach. As Nick rightly points out - you have an extrememly bright future in front of you. These show not only great maturity in the 'seeing' but also the foundatiions of a very strong personal style; quite extraordinary in such a young artist. terrific - keep on.

High praise indeed Amy. Keep up the good work. It's taken me years to feel comfortable with field sketching. You seem to be a natural with it.

Brilliant work here, Amy. I really fell for the Moorhen, and you do seem to be a natural talent - those are very good field sketches!

Thanks so much everyone! Barn owl at their nest box (and a stonechat!) watercolour. Based on a photo from the scene. The stonechat was really there at the same time!

Hi Amy - glad you posted your work - lovely indeed. The montage is fabulous...

You definitely have a keen eye so just keep on sketching. Being able to draw like that makes everything else so much easier...

Great job!

Sorry it's taken me so long to agree with everyone else on how nice that montage is. And to agree that you should keep on sketching. It's the basis of everything else in art.
