Enjoy Natural Wonders at my Summer Art Exhibition

I've just finished a new series of paintings for my summer wildlife art exhibition which opens at my gallery in Thixendale, North Yorkshire, tomorrow.

This buzzard portrait is among the new paintings on show. The exhibition is designed to inspire wonder at Britain’s natural heritage - like hares that can run at 45mph!

It follows the year I spent filming owls, badgers, kestrels, stoats and weasels.

See these detailed pictures alongside my photographs and rare video footage of secret animal encounters.

Among the recordings are the wild stoat I filmed running through a maze - part of the assault course I made for it in my garden.

The story of how It persuaded a tawny owl pair to foster three tawny owlets will also be screened - and you can see the paintings they inspired too, like the one above.

My entire collection of oil and acrylic paintings, pencil drawings, limited edition prints and bronze sculpture  will also be on show.

And there are a number of exciting wildlife events for you to join in too:
