If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook you’ll know by now that my Golden Eagle collage didn’t win the BBC Wildlife Artist Of The Year 2011 Competition, but I did receive a commendation from the judges and am now finally able to show the full collage.
Traditional cut paper collage – 350x600mm
After getting over the initial disappointment, I’m now really pleased that I made it to the finals and received a commendation with the very first large scale collage that I’ve ever made and it has left me more motivated that ever to move forward with more gallery-sized pieces to exhibit and enter more competitions – including of course trying my luck at next year’s BBC Wildlife Artist Of The Year Competition.
I have a local gallery interested in my work, am halfway through the images for my new zoo illustration promo mailers and am currently working on a new, even larger collage of a Grey Heron – exciting times ahead.
Note: Thanks to William Attard McCarthy for letting me use one of his beautiful Golden Eagle photos as one of my references.
