I have a new blog at Toni Watts Wildlife Art where you can read about the wildlife I have seen and the paintings it has inspired.
Exhibition dates will also be regularly updated on that site.
14th December 2013 - After much thought I have decided to move my traditional art combining gold leaf, illustration and lettering to its own dedicated site at Toni Watts Art Studio.
10th Oct 2013 - My miniature painting of a robin has been selected for exhibition with the Royal Society of Miniature Painters, Sculptors and Gravers at the Mall Galleries, London.
21st September 2013 - I have been asked to write a chapter on painting wildlife in a book called 'The Art of Painting in Acrylic', due to be published in America in 2014. The book will include step-by-step- instructions on how my wildlife art is created, from initial sketch to finished product.
21st August 2013 - Fantastic to meet so many of you at the Birdfair. For those who are waiting, Spoon-Billed Sandpiper prints should be available to buy online on 9th September (I am just waiting for a planned webstore update to take place). Work on the Raven print is ongoing - bear with me!
October 2012 - My first miniature wildlife painting (of a wren) has been selected for exhibition by the Royal Society of Miniature Painters, Sculptors and Gravers at the Mall Galleries, London. I am chuffed to bits!
June 2012 - 'Then and Now' was selected for a further exhibition at David Shepherd's headquarters in Shalford, Surry.
April 2012 - David Shepherd Wildlife Artist of the Year 2012 Exhibition
I am over the moon that my painting 'Then and Now' has been chosen as one of the finalists in this prestigious international competition. It will be hung, amongst a selection of wonderful wildlife art, both painting and sculpture, at the Mall Galleries in May this year.
