. . . and so you should be, Adam - this really does have the lot! It's an extremely clever piece; subtle variety in the palette creating a wonderful silver light, so true to the north-east coast - the winding creeks in the mud are repeated in the clouds bringng the whole composition together and the birds are very much a part of the scene, living in that space. An absolute crackerjack, mate!

very powerful work with strong abstract qualities that makes an irresistible image with deep emotional context. to me almost apocalyptic speaking to our relationship to nature....maybe I've heard too much news of the oil spill lately


this is none of my business....but I love this work and really was into it and noticed the signature is so strong it kept getting my attention....since the work is very "empty"....maybe you could tone it down in value so it doesn't get so much attention

Lovely piece, Adam, with wonderful silvery light. It's one of those pieces that makes you think there's a light switched on behind it somehow, hard to believe that it's all done with tones and contrasts.

Blake meets Scott over a group of Wigeon, seeing a scene like this makes the hairs on your back prickle with awe.

Early days yet on this one but I'm trying something a little different for me. A recent photo used as the front cover of the Durham Bird Club's anual report has inspired me to do a painting of the Eastern Crowned warbler,this isnt meant to be a direct copy of the photo more a combination of various photo's and a little from my own memory of the bird.
