Great painting, you capture the light so well (and not a bird insight!). I saw some of your paintings " in the flesh" at Slimbridge before Christmas also very impressive, I hope you sold a few.

Happy start to a new year Tim, just keep it coming, beautiful stormy seascape and wonderful to see the master at work....your rocks are more artistic than the disorganized lava around here and looks like it would be fun to paint them.

Thanks.
This wasn't meant to be a landscape thread, it just seems to be working out that way.

Cracking little pen and Watercolour, brimming with life, wonderful subject too. Love it!

The earlier seascape is wonderful Tim, though for me the landscape at Hoy is a breathtaking painting. Not to fussy, yet immaculately portrayed. What a start to 2013...

The depth and sense of open space in the Hoy landscape is outstanding. The Snow Buntings are wonderful as well. You never disappoint!

Said elsewhere but I've got to say again, that landscape is a cracker and it might make me get the oils out again and attempt some landscapes! If only we ever get any bl**dy light around here ever again!

Gorgeous, and a great example of owl camo! There is at least one of these birds fairly close to home, and they're quite uncommon here, so am anxious to go chase it. Though right now we are in a stretch of dry, but constantly foggy weather, not great for twitching.
