1.”The Edge of the Moor” by Alistair Makinson

The Edge of the Moor – a stunning, original oil on board. Size of image 30x20cm This picture would grace any room in your house it has been beautifully and individually framed to enhance the picture in all it’s glory.
Alistair Makinson is a fantastic wildlife artist based in Lancashire who has supported Countryside Learning for many years. It was whilst recovering from a broken elbow that Alistair started to paint. His first few exhibitions were so well received by the public, that he decided to turn professional after only a year of painting.
The first few years were taken up by landscape painting, and trying to find his own niche and style. In 1996, after five years painting, Alistair started to concentrate on sporting paintings, finding them more challenging and more enjoyable. His major break came in 1997 when Malcolm Innes of Tryon Gallery saw some of Alistair’s work and invited him to exhibit some of his Scottish Salmon River scenes in a Christmas exhibition at his gallery in St. James’s London. H.R.H Princess Margaret attended the preview, and the following day a private viewing was arranged for H.M the Queen Mother.

A professional painter for nearly 30 years, Jonathan is based in Norfolk and can be found many days in the surrounding woods capturing nature in watercolour and oils. Although drawing and painting were always constants in his life, he trained in agriculture and worked as a shepherd. The long and happy hours he spent tending his flock in the Norfolk Breckland gave him the opportunity to watch and learn at close hand the landscape and wildlife he feels so strongly connected to. He was invited to become involved with Artists for Nature Foundation (ANF) and has been on art and conservation trips to Spain and Portugal and to the Great Fen Project in Cambridgeshire.

Born in Accrington, Lancashire, UK in 1954, Jeremy Paul had a successful career in marine biology before becoming a professional Wildlife Artist. After receiving a Doctorate for research, his work took him to live in Spain and some of the most beautiful and remote areas of the British Isles, particularly the west coast of Scotland including a period on a small island with a total population of 6.
This was his first experience of true wilderness and abundant wildlife and it was here that he started painting seriously. During the 1980′s his career in art developed even though he was now a leading authority on shellfish cultivation and in charge of a busy research and development programme based in the Scottish Highlands. A completely self taught artist he works in acrylics, developing the painting in many layers of paint with extensive use of underpainting and glazes to alter the tone and atmosphere of the work.
His work is in the collection of ‘Nature in Art’, the International Centre for Wildlife Art Gloucester, UK, where he is part of their artist in residence programme.
He now lives with his wife and two children on the Isle of Man, where he has also received commissions from the Isle of Man Government and in 2002 was asked to put on a private exhibition for the visit to the Island of the King and Queen of Norway.
