More masterful stuff, sir. Will you be taking in part of deepest, darkest South Yorkshire, Tim? If so, just let me know when and where!

Various projects are keeping me occupied at the moment, but I'm still popping into the forum for regular shots in the arm.
A couple of recent pieces developed from an encounter with one of the hundreds of short-eared owls loping about the county at the moment.
Just every now and then I get an urge to do something verbatum . . .
I present "a bird on a stick x 2"

I've gone back and forth on these but have settled on number one as well. There's such a facial expression.

Quite wonderful SEO's!
I'm very much looking forward to July! I might just bring out something which you mix with water and makes nice colours!

Thanks folks.

A rare excursion into planning; a small cartoon for a full sheet watercolour already in progress.

cartoon nonsense! this is great!But still looking forward to see how you improve on it. You can pack more colour into a female eider than anyone.

well the planning resulted in this;
. . . and a small watercolour sketch of eiders and a l-t duck which may turn into something and a pastel sketch for a sharpie idea I have in mind.

The cartoon is nice,but the light in the final piece is very ,very beautiful..Those two Eiders wont stop revealing themselves once and again,for the piece is perfectly developed from the original formal ideal into the true soul of a moment..
Congratulations,and many Thanks

Planning paid off Tim. It's great to be able to compare the cartoon and the finished painting. And the new eider sketch looks like it has a lot of potential.
