congrats on putting some work on display, about time the world at large had the pleasure, I'm sure they'll be very well appreciated.
Can't help with the tracks though, it took me ages to realise there were tracks in the photo!

Definitely otter Arthur - great to have them around but a bit of a bugger if they've got a a taste for koi! And really well done on bringing your work out of the house - about b100dy time!
Well done mate - keep us posted.

Well done Arthur, always knew you'd get gallery space when you tried.

Otters....In the garden.....You lucky, lucky.....
Not so lucky for the fish or the wallet though!

Good to hear from you again.

Thanks again for the kind words.
Trying to get awayfrom Owls, but who can resist.
Lovely head on veiws as they come along the setaside. They dont pay much attention to me now and the light in the low evening sun has a warm buttery air to it.that would be a challenge to capture.

What a Barn Owl Arthur!
Such a sensitive handling of textures!
Regarding your flying one, try it in brush please!
I'm sure it will be of the same caliber!

Yea - great drawings Arthur. Catches the feel perfectly. I'm quite chuffed with myself too as on a trip via East Lothian I had two (probably a pair) on adjacent field stabs on the way to my ister's house in N Berwick. First I've seen for over 20 years!

I'm with Paschalis on the barn owl Arthur, he'd make a great subject for a painting.

I need a barn owl fix, haven't seen one in a couple of weeks so I'm off to find one tomorrow morning!

Oh yes Arthur - this is another cracker. Particularly like the grassland and how you've made some subtle yet distinctive changes in the species-types. Very nice.

A very beautiful drawing - the delicate stems emerging from the water contribute more by being less.

A sugared almond of a drawing there Arthur, all delicate, pastel sweetness and delicious to boot!

Redstarts have started great and you know I love a waggy so I'm waiting in anticipation of a sheet of drawings, don't make me wait too long!

I love the redstarts, all of them look great and I can't choose a favourite (though I think it's between the bottom two). Your lucky to have them in the garden too!

Gotta say how much I like the barny too. Clearly the barn owl is the important thing here, but I don't think I can leave without mentioning the grass, it's unbelievably grassy!

Another lovely sheet of drawings Arthur - you've achieved a very subtle and beautiful lighting effect on these, particularly the top right bird.
