I've started to work on a long forgotten oil painting. I've painted the mudflat in January, but then became quite frustrated about the birds, so put it away. See the work in progress in my January blog: http://kokayart.blogspot.com/2008_01_01_archive.html.
Now I would like to finish this for the British Birdwatching Fair. I think this long 'rest' was useful, as I can work on it now with fresh eye. The birds are roughly completed, legs, shadows, feather detail left. 1-2 day's work.

The opening of my exhibition was yesterday at the Ministry for the Environment. I've exhibited my field sketches with some studio work connected to them.






















It was opened by my former colleague, Gábor Magyar, who will be the president of WWF Hungary from September.
