Great evening in Bewdley yesterday with all the guys from the west midlands safari artist and photographer of the year. Two category winners and most special of all I was named the overall winner. Eleanor had a great time collecting all the prizes with me! Great artwork, especially from the under 18s, and some terrific photographs. The competition will run again next year and is set to get even bigger!
Its a busy time of year for exhibitions, and I am very pleased to be involved once again in the National Exhibition of Wildlife Art. Two of my watercolours, both painted on reclaimed veneer are included.
I am very delighted to say that once again I am participating in the Guild of Aviation Artists annual exhibition of paintings in the Mall Galleries in London.
The exhibition runs from July 18th to 24th with free entry. The on-line gallery for this year can be found here:- http://www.gava.org.uk/2016-gallery/
I have five pictures on show including this one of an RAF Tornado GR4
With the David Shepherd Wildlife Artist of the Year Exhibition 2016. Very pleased to say that both “Adidas Pride” and “Tiger Heat” have found new homes, raising some much needed cash for wildlife conservation.
Another great exhibition for this competition – with half the proceeds from sales going to help wildlife conservation projects around the world. Both of my pictures in the final have sold as has my charity postcard – which is brilliant!
Stroll On – galapagos Tortoise also picked up a Highly Commended from the judges – so not bad at all!
Well after a long day of mixed fortune (for familly reasons) we made it down to the Mall Galleries in London for the David Shepherd Wildlife Artist of the Year Awards and to my absolute amazement “Vulture Club” was picked by David Shepherd as his personal choice from all of the brilliant artwork on display. So a great result and feeling very proud – here I am in the very hot gallery after the presentation!
I am delighted to say that all my work in the evenings over the last two months on some aviation paintings resulted in all six of my paintings that I submitted for this year’s Guild of Aviation Artists exhibition being accepted. The link for the exhbition is below with the show and on-line catalogue running from the 21st to the 27th of July.
