UKCPS members and their art at Wildlife Artist of the Year 2009

I attended the Private View and Awards Ceremony for the Wildlife Artist of the Year last night with UKCPS members Gayle Mason and Jonathan Newey - two of the three three UKCPS members whose work is being displayed in this very high quality exhibition

Unlike last year when Richard Childs won the major prize, none of the UKCPS members went home with a prize. This year the judging panel appears to have favoured renderings which were less photographic and more painterly (whatever the media).

Below you can see photos of Gayle and Jonathan with their pieces - which also gives you a much better sense of the size of work they submitted. Jonathan's piece was about average size in terms of the work on display. Gayle says she's going to produce a bigger work next year!

The exhibition continues at the Mall Galleries until Saturday 6th June.
