Going, going . . . .

The first week at Washington Wildfowl Trust has gone really well, got a phone call on Thursday to say they'd sold 3 pictures in the first few days. I was out at the time and by time I got home I'd received an email to say they'd now sold 5 and could I bring some more down! Seems to be my character birds which are proving most popular :

Luckily I still had a couple up at Thornley Woodlands Centre and today I painted a couple more, then rushed out and bought some frames, so will be going over tomorrow to hang another four pics up. Have had a host of nice comments from the Centre staff and a further commission as well. Great for the confidence when things haven't been going so well.

New Show begins . . .

Put my new show up at Washington Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust Centre today. Actually sold one before I'd finished putting them all up so not a bad start.

24 pictures, (well 23 now) a mix of old and new, mainly simple birdlife compositions in watercolour with the occasional dragonfly and token fish. All very affordable, nothing over £100 and many well below.

The Wildfowl Centre is a great family day out so pop along for a look, here's some photos of what to expect :

Exhibition runs until June 29th. For directions follow the link on the previous post.
