I am enjoying making pictures of British wildlife so much. Every time I see a new species I am immediately inspired by it!
You may have already seen â€˜Hare and frogâ€™, â€˜Fox and perchâ€™, â€˜Coot and carpâ€™ which I made earlier this year. Go to the â€˜Living thingsâ€™ gallery to view them. More recently I made â€˜Squirrel and oakâ€™, inspired by the grey squirrels that visit our garden and scamper through the oak tree on there way to the bird nuts.
Last weekend I finished two more in my series featuring British wildlife.
The idea for â€˜Otter and brown troutâ€™ (pictured left) came about after a fishing trip on the Windrush earlier in the summer with my son. Then two weeks ago we saw a gang of captive otters at the local wildlife park. That trip to the wildlife park also gave me the idea for â€˜Barn owl and wood mouseâ€™ (pictured right) where we saw a barn owl being flown by a falconer.
Each picture is a drypoint and watercolour, sized 300mm x 400mm and available for a credit-crunch-busting Â£95 unframed. Buy any two pictures (unframed) from the British wildlife series on this page
for Â£175, any three for Â£245 or any four for Â£300.
I wonder what will inspire me next? A badger perhapsâ€¦
