Obviously my embarking on a full-time job for the summer season will mean I'll be spending less time sat behind my desk with pencils in hands BUT this doesn't mean I'll be stopping drawing altogether, far from it. I have a couple of wildlife commissions to complete as well as preparing for my being the "Summer Artist" at a lovely little gallery called Aradia in Emley, Huddersfield where delectable Tuscan edibles and wines are also available www.aradiaglobal.com Here I will be exhibiting both original work and limited edition prints for the months of May and June 2014 so if you're in the area do pop by and say hello! I'll post more about this closer to the time.
Still rather giddy about my Mountain Gorillas drawing going to that London (read more from a previous blog post here) The exhibition will be open to the public from 3rd June to 7th June 2014. If you're thinking of going it will be free admission and well worth a pop in if you're local-ish so scribble the dates in your diary if you're a fan of wildlife art, there are going to be some stunning pieces there! Here's a link to the Exhibition website where an online catalogue will be available to view from May 10th www.davidshepherd.org/way/
I also mentioned I would be posting up a progress post of my Puffin Study that I'm currently working on so here are a few more updates for you:
|Taking off or about to land? You decide!|
|Havin' a scratch|
|Scratching pose completed and onto a snuggled pose...|
|A double update as the layering of the feathers has built up, my brain was definitely starting to feel fluffy after staring at so many!|
