Hares always seem to be disappearing over hills or just off into the distance! More nice sketches Arthur and do I detect Mr. Wootton's influence in this latest layout?

lots of waders, that's what I like to see, shame there are none around here. Coming along very nicely.

This is looking fabulous, Arthur - excellent design, waders working the same way, really natural and convincing. Should be a superb piece, when complete. Great stuff.

This one is going to be fantastic Arthur, really nice vibrant colours in the godwits. Another classic norfolk scene!

Looking good, Arthur. You must have enough recent work for an exhibition now, surely. Ought to be your next move, I think - Summertime in Norfolk - contact the galleries!

Thankyou both.I like your idea's Tim maybe later,but I'me enjoying doing what I want and trying differant mediums and styles rather than commit to anything at the moment. Its fun now having the time to be able to have a go at all these things and hopefully improve as you go on.

How's it coming along, Arthur? Really looking forward to seeing the lapwing in particular and the whole piece of course. Out of interest, what size is this picture?

With all the movement and rhythm from the godwits, the lapwing is an excellent anchor for the picture, it almost looks dizzied by all the action.

Nearly done, I'll bet you'll be glad to finally finish this one. Looking great. The added green is really bringing out the godwits rust tones.

I think the colour's are fab in this one Arthur. The tonal perspective works well too. Very nice.

I think it's there also Arthur - and it's a triumph. I really like the way you keep the focus throughout the piece (your eyes must be pretty good too!), and I particularly like the foreground birds - the shadow on the near godwit's neck is just great. well done.
