hare paintings

Inspired by Watching Hares I paint in a realistic style and try to capture every detail. Hares are mostly solitary animals, but they group together when they are courting. This is when their behaviour becomes interesting since it involves bouts of boxing and high-speed races in which the female tests the strength of her suitors. This art collection includes paintings that capture this behaviour as well as paintings of solitary hares. Paintings of Hares in […]

Puffins are everybody’s favourite seabird and it’s not hard to see why. With their smart black and white plumage, comical walk and bright orange beaks, these small birds really stand out. Puffins in Art As an artist I love puffins for their exquisite striped bills, edged with shades of blue, grey, red, orange, yellow and cream. Their dark eyes off-set this colourful beak with coordinated red and blue eyeliner. It’s as though these birds are asking to […]

Weasel Watch | A Story that Inspired my Paintings   I’ve followed the intimate lives of a family of weasels in my garden since 2015 and my research includes new insights into the courtship behaviour of these tiny predators. Weasels are so small and secretive it is difficult to study their behaviour. Until now, population counts have been largely conducted from specimens trapped by gamekeepers whilst behavioural studies were mainly based on captive animals. As […]

stoat study

Author:

A stoat scampers across the decking outside my studio and pauses at the patio door. She stands on her hind legs to press a delicate five-digit paw against the glass. Our eyes connect momentarily. I know this wild individual well. Her name is Bandita and at the time of writing her portrait sits on my easel, awaiting the final touches. As Bandita slips away, I follow her movements via a bank of monitors next to […]

Photograph: Wildlife Artist and Photographer Robert E Fuller with a Stoat

Author:

The Wonderful World of Weasels and Stoats More is known about the habits of snow leopards than of weasels and stoats, so as a wildlife artist and photographer I created a haven in my garden in order to capture their magical, brutal lives. Here’s what I found…. Photograph: Weasel among pink saxifrage Untrustworthy, sly and vicious: the negative characteristics of weasels and stoats can be traced back to ancient times. Back then these tiny carnivores […]

How My Art Studies Became an Obsession  Falling for the stoats & weasels in my garden For five years, I have followed six generations of the same stoat family and a dynamic weasel dynasty. The project began as an art study to gather reference photographs and information for my paintings, but it soon turned into a mission to understand as much as I could about these minute mustelids. My findings are now drawing interest from […]
