Pics4painting: An idea we ( Hashim Akib and myself ) had for a while but hadn't had the time to do. During our lockdown we gave ourselves even more work to do and created a new website which evolved as we went along!Our new website contains everything we offer in our traditional workshops and more. We have lots of reference material, over 2000 photos from our own photo library for artists to use for their paintings/drawings as well as an ideas page with videos to view on various themes. There's also what we hope will be our regular workshops following the themes we had lined up for this year. https://www.pics4painting.com/#/
David Shepherd Wildlife Artist of the Year Exhibition: As everyone began to adapt during lockdown. I was delighted that the DSWAY exhibition went ahead online. There was even an online award ceremony hosted by the new CEO Georgina Lamb. I had 2 paintings shortlisted in the exhibition 'Meeting Point' and 'Asiatic Lions' I was fortunate to also have 'Asiatic Lions' Highly commended by the judges. More importantly 50% of the sale from these paintings will help DSWF continue funding vital work protecting endangered species across Africa and Asia. https://davidshepherd.org/wildlife-art/wildlife-artist-of-the-year/
