VIDEO: Wildlife Field Study sketches by the SWLA


This is my video (below) of the sketches and artwork produced by members of the Society of Wildlife Artists during Wildlife Study Projects in the field at:
  1. Kingcombe Meadows Nature Reserve, Dorset Wildlife Reserve - during a Residency by SWLA in May 2017 
  2. RSPB/SWLA Wallasea Island Wild Coast Project 
For more about each of these places/projects click the links above.



The sketches are being displayed in the North Galleries of the Annual Exhibition of the Society of Wildlife Artists at the Mall Galleries - which runs until 1pm on Sunday 29th October.

Given my personal preference for botanical subject matter it's unsurprising that I was particularly taken by Carry Akroyd's sketches of the Kingscombe Meadows.
Amazing sketches pf Kingscombe Meadows by Carry Akroyd SWLA
Sketches and a woodblock print by Matt Underwood
Some of the sketches from the John Busby Seabird Drawing Bursaries can be seen right at the end of the video
My review of the exhibition - which is taking a bit longer than anticipated - follows tomorrow.
