Exhibition at last ready…

Oriel Ynys MonA5handout

What a week!  Finishing, framing, mirror plating and wrapping 40 pictures for my exhibition at Oriel Ynys Mon Long Gallery, at Llangefni, Anglesey.  This represents about two years’ work, watching and drawing seabirds in the UK and the Falkland Islands.  It’s been fun!  The work has really changed over that time: I started off with oils on canvas that I stretched myself:

Gentoo Penguin, oil on canvas

 

and finished by using mostly egg tempera on board:

West Indian Whistling Duck (seen at Slimbridge!), egg tempera on board

 

and also started my very exciting (to me, anyway!) Icon series – interactive pieces with a hinged front.
