Summer Art

I spent a lot of my holiday doing art for my GCSE sketchbook, and there is a bit of a running theme. I just wanted to do a quick blog post to share some of the stuff I’ve done in the sketchbook so far… Caged dog in Pencil Scapegoat Badger in the style of Dave Read More…

A focus on jumping spiders

This is probably my penultimate blog post of the summer holiday, and I’ve decided to show you a very small, common and humble type of creature found in most gardens all over the country. They are, however, a lot more interesting than most people think. Here’s a summary video to kick off, but if you Read More…

Birdfair 2017

Last night, I got back from my second ever Birdfair, feeling tired and, as expected, a little bit depressed that I would have to wait another year for the next one. Before I begin, I should probably give a quick description of the event, in case anyone has never been before. It is an annual Read More…

Countryfile live

30 Days Wild Day 5

Today I’m afraid you’ll just have to suffice with a painting of a badger I did for GCSE art – I am really finding it difficult to fit in much around school hours and revision. This particular painting was in a much more creative style than my normal paintings, and is more to some people’s Read More…

#30 Days Wild Day 4

Yesterday, I’m afraid was another failed quest. I had hoped to bring you films of badger cubs, but unfortunately, because of exams, I couldn’t stay up late enough to see them. Instead, I simply spent an hour sitting on The Fallen Tree in the woods, revising Physics and waiting for some small bushy humbugs with Read More…
