A lot to like here Adam - my absolute favourites are the fifth one from your first post; the angle of the birds is perfectly done and that crisp moonlit scene works really well. The perch is a real cracker, too.

Welcome along to the best bit Adam.

I like the fifth one too along with the first one, shame to hide your light under a bushel for so long! Lots more like these to come I hope.

Yes - these are excellent - super composition with the grouse and a nice variety of poses giving that grouse 'explosion' feel and I think the woodcock is a fab piece. Hope you get the eider done soon too - that's definitely headed the right way (what are your plans? adding a few more?) - good sea.

Thanks again Tim, my plan is to add another Eider below and to the left of the first bird,i'd like it to be a female in a way to make a pair but not sure i'll be able to pull that off as well as another drake.

Lovely stuff. The Woodcock composition is atmospheric ,and you understand the "rule of thirds" so naturally. Oils are so hard to master. You seem to be a natch! Good luck and keep posting your stuff!

Oh! I wondered why it wasn't finished but I can see now how adding the other two in will really bring it to life.

Very nice Adam

What i love about your art is that your passion for game and your understanding of the movements of driven birds stands out clearly in a similar mannar to someone like Colin Woolf

the addition of the other two eiders helps in giving a forward direction, before it seemed like the eider was following the lighthouse, but the changes here are going to make a very strong picture.
