THE month-long Drawn from Life wildlife exhibition will soon be drawing to a close at the Burton Art Gallery and Museum in Bideford.
This exhibition brings together the work of some of Britain's leading wildlife artists, who have chosen to work directly from life in the field.
They have developed methods of drawing and painting rapidly on the spot and concentrate on capturing the life and vitality of their subjects rather than producing detailed portraits. This fresh and honest approach captures the excitement and enjoyment of watching wildlife in the field and records many beautifully observed 'moments in time.'
Warren Collum, Exhibitions and Collections Officer, said: "These artists are at the forefront of their practice and are pushing the boundaries of wildlife art. Living in this unique area, with a UNESCO world heritage site, the biosphere, on our doorstep, this exhibition provides a real insight into wildlife, habitat and the methods of capturing these exceptional experiences."
