Now, I'm back from holidays and trying to "recover" from
the holiday "laziness", I decided to visit our zoo once again and
didn't regret it...

Absolutely amazing work - the colour, texture and lighting. Just like seeing the living creature - terrific.

amazing work - so that's what chamois look like close-up! I only ever see them from a distance, really wish I had your eyes when I want to paint mammals.

I spend the whole morning at Munich zoo yesterday,the weather was fine and I
tried my chances with a species I never sketched before..
The crirticaly endangered Mhorr Gazelle.
After a couple of failed attempts, I've been rewarded with this ....

I'm only just back from a short break so working through the threads may take some time - but I had to stop and applaud this piece; shining with light and life. Simply outstanding!

When I look at this thread I see, in abundance, superb technique, no little skill, application and an intimate knowledge of the subject. There's something else what I can't put my finger on, I think it's a certain gift though!

Stunning work

just spent time on your wonderful blog, you are truly a master of it all, but I think the raptors exceeded them all....so special that an artist like you is here so I can bask in the mastery you display

Don't know what to say about these other than superb! What size do you typically work on these?

Hi Paschalis,
Great work. I was in Norway the last two weeks, painting with Wolfgang Weber and Jon Yule. I show them your bird guide (in German) that they liked so much. I think Wolfgang knows you and he talked wonders about you.
Congratulations
