Wow! What have we been missing? All quite stunning works. If Lars decides to 'retire', It now seems there is someone to fill his boots.
Sensational stuff.

Playing with the acrylics again with a view to producing work for the Maine show. I need to get this collection up and running 'cos I have to paint another show (for Orkney) of 35 pieces before we take a short break to Yorkshire in early July . . . time flies!
Also chuffed to get my entry accepted for the David Shepherd Wildlife Artist of the Year Award and Exhibition.

Cheers.
Nick - it's this one; "20 Years Left; The extinction of British Arctic Skua" . . . jolly little number, eh?
Also had a yellow-legged gull fly straight in front of the car this afternoon on the school run home . . . not yer everyday sighting!! Funny thing - last one I saw was in Benalmadina. Might take a peek for it tomorrow, if I can be *rsed.

good! that one deserves to be shown in a splendid show!

YLG must be quite good bird up there, we don't get that many here ( but it is the default gull species )

35 paintings for a different show!! I guess it's no sleep until July eh? Hard to imagine producing that much work. But getting into shows like this should help with the motivation to get them done. Congratulations.

No, not this year, too busy with the move to get anything worthwhile done or organised. Though after my nap, I'm going to have a stab at a backlit whimbrel being bullied by a territorial curlew that I just had on my patch.

Beautiful work - the Eiders especially. I think sea birds always have the better backdrops for painting.

Wonderful work in this tread, Tim. The two Arctic skuas together are among the best I've seen! Good luck with the competition.

I love your compositions. I wish I could do better placing my subjects in a more aesthetic way like you've done. Keep up the great work.
