I'm planning to make postcards from 9 of my paintings. I would like to ask for your help to choose from my works. Please make a list of 9 paintings from the ones found in the watercolour, acrylic, oil and probably the field sketches gallery of my webpage.
To make this a little bit more inspirational, at the end, when I have the postcards printed, I'll pick one name from the hat from those who helped me, and will send a series of the 9 postcards as a present. Please put your choice list in the comment of this blog post.


I'm sure that this winning painting will be one of the 9. And that I'll try to include one Snow Leopard painting (in case I can deal with the theme at last).

my vote! This is a hard choice...

from Oils gallery:
- On duty (Syrian Woodpecker)
- 'We are all young' (juvenile shorebirds)
- Last lights (Ural Owl)
- Singing Paddyfield Warbler

from Sketchbook:
- Long-eared Owl (28 February)

from Acrylic:
- Peregrine on Saint Stephen's Cathedral III
- Juvenile Red-breasted Flycatcher
- Lesser White-fronts with other Geese

from Watercolour:
- With mom (Eurasian Eagle Owl)


If we could also chose from Watercolour/Gouache, I chose Roebuck (the 1st one) instead of Lesser White-fronts.
Some others are nice, too... Difficult!

I think you have lot of very good sketches in your blog that not appear in your web. Like Martí, is very difficult choose only a few. All the Best!

I also agree that there are some great sketches in your blog that are not in your website. I should check all your posts again, but I think there were some stunning ones!
