See my latest original wildlife paintings:
I photographed this squirrel one morning in an ancient pine forest in Aviemore with photographer Neil McIntyre. This squirrel appeared from behind a tree stump to peer out at us inquisitively.
This badger cub is part of a family of badgers that I visit nightly at their sett close to my gallery. I always like to see the young cubs when they first emerge in April.
This hare was born in my garden. I often saw it on a bank of wildflowers. Ever on the alert, it glanced up as I was taking its photograph.
Peregrines are the ultimate predator. I was granted special permission to study this female and her family after they took up residence at Salt End Chemical Plant in Hull. It was am incredible experience watching the world’s fastest bird in such an industrial setting.
I photographed this leveret in my garden. It was actually born next to my greenhouse. When it was small I saw the mother coming to feed it and its siblings at dusk. Over the weeks it was here I became quite fond of it.
I love to paint avocets with their long sweeping beaks and monochrome feathers. Numbers of avocets have increased dramatically in recent years. I like to watch the shapes they form when they stand together in a group.
I photographed these two hares during a severe snow storm named the Beast fromthe East. Surprisingly these hares were courting in the cold whilst other wildlife was simply struggling to survive.
I photographed these squirrels one winter in the Yorkshire Dales. Red squirrels are holding their own in the pine forests and larch plantations there.
I was granted special permission to study this female peregrine and her family after they took up residence at Salt End Chemical Plant in Hull. It was an incredible experience watching the fastest bird in the world and ultimate predator in such an unusual and industrial location. Here, I was inspired by the way she is looking straight out of the frame.
I set up a fascinating project to study hawfinches at Yorkshire Arboretum over the winter of 2017/18. Hawfinches have a near-mythical status amongst birdwatchers since they are so difficult to watch in the wild. I built a hide beneath a stand of hornbeams and lured the birds onto a bird table fixed to the front of my hide. This was laden with their favourite foods. The photographs I took were the inspiration for this painting.
I watched this great crested grebe nest at York University. It was amazing to see just how relaxed it was just 10 metres from a busy footpath. It hatched three stripy chicks and took them out onto the main lake. But they kept coming back to the nest to rest and roost.
In this painting I wanted to capture the essence of the Yorkshire Wolds, with its criss-cross of dale sides and its abundant wildlife. I wanted to capture that moment when you turn a corner on a walk and come across a wonderful wildlife scene like this.
I love to see pheasants strutting around over Christmas when their plumage is at its best. This one had been hiding in some grasses and rushed out as I approached. When it realised that I wasn’t a threat, it held its tail aloft and marched off, keeping its beady eye on me!
I travelled to Antarctica in 2007 and saw the largest penguin colony at St Andrew’s Bay with over 1/2 million penguins. But these two were from the smallest colony we visited – just 18 birds – on Saunders Island, Falkland Islands.
The title of this painting ‘King of Savute’ really sums up this magnificient painting of this male lion. Photographed by Robert in Botswana in 2000, this male exuded power & presence.
I hope you have enjoyed your exclusive preview of original wildlife paintings! My exhibition runs at my gallery in Thixendale until July 8th. I hope to see you there!
