Exciting news: each year one of the Bird Fair events is a “Spotlight On…” a wildlife artist, whereby the said artist demonstrates a painting from start to finish on front of an audience. This year they’ve invited me to be the featured one. Previously featured artists read like a who’s who of bird art: Chris Rose, Ian Lewington, Bruce Pearson, Peter Partington, Darren Woodhead… so I’m in illustrious company. Sounds like fun, though completing a painting in one hour whilst giving an entertaining commentary is slightly daunting. But I’m up for the challenge, so bring it on!
