Animals Do the Funniest Things: Art Exhibition
Working with animals never fails to put a smile on your face and no one knows this better than the wildlife artist Robert E Fuller.
This November he will be revealing some of his most priceless animal observations as part of an exhibition of his paintings at his gallery in Thixendale.
The Yorkshire artist spends hours watching wild creatures in their natural habitat before picking up a paintbrush to create highly detailed and realistic animal portraits.
Now he plans to display some of his funniest photographic studies alongside a new collection of his paintings of animals and birds from around the world.
The show, which runs from November 12th to December 4thth, also includes video clips showing comical captures. These include footage of Galapagos blue footed boobies making their ungainly way along a beach and of British birds like black grouse leaping comically to impress females during the mating season.
In a career that has taken him to remote locations across the globe, Robert Fuller has observed some priceless animal antics.
"I once watched a penguin overwhelmed by the crowds of penguins and seals blocking its path to the sea in Antarctica slap an elephant seal in frustration," he said.
"They say never work with animals and children, but of course I wouldn't have it any other way. It takes a lot of patience to get the shots I need for my paintings, but when the birds and animals I'm watching occasionally do something funny it always helps lighten my day."
"I hope visitors to my exhibition will enjoy seeing some of the funnier pictures I've taken as I watch wildlife for my paintings."
