Summer Show 2016 - Washington WWT

At the weekend I hung my fourth annual summer show at Washington Wildfowl and Wetlands Centre which will run until the end of July.
It's always a pleasure to exhibit at one of our favourite family 'days out' and an ideal venue for my wildlife-based art.This year I have the usual mix of old and new, but with a more prominent display of my 'Character' birds which prove ever popular whenever I display them and now I'm testing out a new value-sized micro-print, which are ideal for gifts or for people to collect their favourite birds from my ever-increasing array of characters, though I realise I've forgotten to photograph them before I displayed them (excellent marketing skills, not). You'll just have to pay a visit and see for yourselves.

But here are a few of the newer characters being shown for the first time in mini-print form :

The Kingfisher - always a treat to see on the local pond or river

Grey Wagtail - another riverine favourite

Tawny Owl
many in local woodland but more often heard than seen

And some more pics in the display before they were hung :
Cubist Magpie, Garden Medley and Dali Llama

Dragonflies, Red Kites, Little Owls and interesting
triple-print of the popular Chilean Flamingo  

Finally the display in situ, 36 pictures, all great value, guaranteed to brighten up any room. Nature at its most colourful :

Some of the new micro-prints just above the little boy's cap 

Not all birds, there's a fish there as well :-)

A little gap there, one sold already :-)

Badgers, abstract swans and dragonflies, and a few originals as well.
     

There are more (and better) photos from the exhibition on the Washington WWT Facebook page :
