Yes cheers Mike - I thought I'd spotted a wip somewhere, but maybe that was on Wetcanvas (was it Paul?). Ahem - we'll keep the 'artists-wives and partners' thread for another day, shall we.

Sorry Paul, just a simple matter of taking off the last bit of the directory...

though everybody knows I'm not a big fan of photo-realism, it is astonishing the skill and control that is needed to produce a work like this. I feel I could run my fingers through those feathers and have them bitten off by it!

Seriously good work though Paul. Love the one of the Gos tucked in to the
side of the tree trunk.

Brilliant news Paul - richly deserved, too (I assume you mean the WIP above). Excellent!

I know what you are saying andy... unfortunately, all the commissions I am getting are asking for that particular style... I want to do some action stuff too, but again people are wanting portrait stuff... and at the moment I cant turn down paying customers.... thanks for all the comments, im so pleased with the site I cant tell you... Paul

its an online portrait thing called picture draw... there is a monthly comp, then all the monthly winners get judged at the end of the year for an overall winner... I was quite pleased as I have never entered anything before... I am also going to be in next months sporting shooter magazine, as the featured artist.... hopefully I may be able to get some serious work now... he dreams...HP

Hi hunterpaul,

WOW....I'm a little behind in seeing all this lovely work on here but by far yours has been the most inspirational for me and the closest to what I would look to achieve in my own work. A photorealist!!!! I simply love it! I know some people find it hard to see the point in creating a piece of artwork that replicates a photograph but from a skill point of view it's not just a matter of copying photographs. It's how each individual interprets something and we do afterall see things differently. Patience helps a great deal to but it also clearly shows you love what you do!

Love it! Absolutely love it! Airbrush or digital?...either way fantastic!

thanks very much... I only use the airbrush on the background, the rest is with conventional brushes, and acrylic paint.... I invent the background, and as these are commissions of peoples birds I add their bird to whatever bg, and foreground they want... and on whatever prey they like... eg I am working on another gos at the moment... the gos was originally on a pheasant but the guy wanted it on a hare, by a river.... so what I came up with was this....

Amazing yet again....!

I've never really got to grips with acrylic as I always used to find it a "Flat Paint" if there is such a thing. Always been more of a fan of pen, ink and watercolour and of course more recently now the Wacom!

I'd love to be able to make a living out of doing the kind of work you do but I'm pretty sure that even though I have a great deal of patience I'd definitely take too long to complete it and I'd be bankrupt in no time!

On average how long can a commission take you? Start to finish...
