Skomer Puffin and North Wales Open

Skomer Puffin
©Sharon Whitley the Rambling Artist

Not been painting as much recently but did this puffin the other night, it's from one of Gary's photos and my facebook challenge this month is to paint him - so had to have a go myself - there have been some brilliant paintings entered, pop over and take a look if you're on facebook, the link is on the side bar!  

We're off to Skomer Island again on Saturday as the puffin chicks have now hatched and there will be loads of opportunities to get photos of puffins carrying a humungous number of fish in their mouths - amazing how they do that!!!  Tomorrow we'll be visiting the Dyfi Osprey Project and will finally hopefully get to see Monty for real!  And then on Sunday I'll be visiting Clwyd Theatr Cymru where two of my black headed gull paintings have been selected for the North Wales Open Art Exhibition - this runs from 22 June to 30 August - I'm chuffed to bits!!



So what are you up to at the weekend?

  6. Congratulations on the show - and on this gorgeous version of the puffin. There is something so cute and funny about these birds, even more so than penguins. You've done a great job on the white that isn't white and still shows his or her belly and roundness. Will come back to see more photos later :) Have a fantastic trip!

  10. Your puffin is gorgeous. We saw them for the first time a couple of weeks ago and they really are the sweetest birds. Congrats on your gull paintings-I love your watercolour style.
