Follow a single-track road as it drops into a deep fold of the Yorkshire Wolds landscape and you will, eventually, reach my home and gallery. Dedicated exclusively to my artwork, The Robert Fuller Gallery is a major draw to this remote Yorkshire region. Click here to read about the story of how it started as an collection of dilapidated farm buildings and was transformed to the beautiful beamed building you see today. Business at my […]

I met my wife Victoria when I was 20 and she was just 17. Six years later in June 1998, we moved to Fotherdale Farm, a house high on the Yorkshire Wolds owned by Lord Halifax. The house had been in a poor state of repair for some time, but had been recently renovated by the Garrowby Estate. However there was still plenty to do to turn it into a ‘home’. One of the first […]

I have designed the garden at Fotherdale specifically to attract wildlife and many of my paintings are portraits of the wild creatures that now regularly visit it.  When my wife Victoria and I moved to Fotherdale, the garden had been leveled with a JCB digger and there were only two plants remaining – a red hot poker and a fushia. This was actually ideal because we had a blank canvas to work on. The first […]

I always associate them with the run up to Christmas, when they arrive to escape the icy winters further north. So when I heard that they had begun arriving in record numbers one November along a few first flurries of snow, the news put me in seasonal mood. Waxwings migrate to the UK to take feed on our rowan berries when stocks in their native Scandinavia begin to run out. The first waxwings always land in flocks on the north east […]

I’ve endured the icy winds of Antarctica in order to photograph wildlife for my paintings. But nothing in that cold climate compares to my ordeal of watching courting hares on the Yorkshire Wolds in 2010. As the country came to grips with one of the iciest cold snaps in decades, I spent 10 days trudging through thigh deep snow, sometimes for eight hours a day. When it snows on the Wolds, it really snows, and […]

We have five species of owl living in mainland Britain, but at this time of year you could be forgiven for thinking there is only one. Tawny owls make more noise than the other four species put together during October and November. And all this extra shrieking, hooting and ‘kee-wick’- ing is down to one thing: territory. Young birds are reaching maturity and looking for new homes while older birds are fighting to hold on […]

In order to photograph wildlife up close it is important to blend into the background. I have had plenty of practice and have a few tricks up my sleeve: a snow white ski suit, a balaclava made out of a pillowcase, white oven gloves and tailored white covers  to wrap around my camera and tripod. Click here to read about how I learned how to prepare for photographing wildlife in snow and see some of […]

The birds that are hardest to observe usually give me the greatest rewards and the woodcock is of Europe’s most elusive birds. Essentially a wader, its plumage, an intricately patterned palette of russets, fawns, greys and blacks, is seamlessly camouflaged with the leaf litter of a woodland floor where it takes cover during the day, making it virtually impossible to observe. When disturbed, woodcock will break cover only at the last minute. Their flight is […]

This painting of a fox mousing in the snow forms part of a new collection of wildlife in winter due to go on show at my gallery on November 4th- 2th. For more information on what to expect at this event follow this link.  I spotted this fox as I was driving home late one evening. Dusk was just settling over the snowy landscape when I saw something moving by a straw stack. I stopped […]
