Gold at TWASI
Mike was delighted to receive the Gold Citation at The Wildlife Art Society International exhibition held at Nature in Art, Twigworth, Gloucester in July where he exhibited two Oil paintings.
He was very pleased to find that “The Falcon “had won the Gold award, and his second painting of a swan titled “Soft Light “ won the People’s Choice.
The People’s Choice is voted for by the visitors over the duration of the exhibition indicating their favourite painting.
Of the two paintings Mike was most pleased to exhibit the “The Falcon “as this was a change from his normal traditional painting style being a painting in oil of a falcon, black on white. The judges’ comments “a bold composition with a striking technique, using light and shade rather than colour”, gave Mike the Gold Award.
