Rory Carr – Bird of Prey Collection

From an early age Rory Carr 27, has been fascinated by wildlife, particularly birds and insects. It is perhaps unsurprising then that the natural world has become a major influence and source of inspiration for this up-and-coming artist. He is currently putting together a British Birds of Prey Collection.

Rory works primarily in watercolour, but prepares his work by first drawing the subject using pencil. Once painted, he adds extra definition and emphasises areas of texture using ink which serves to strengthen the composition. This multi-disciplinary approach, combining drawing skills with wash techniques, Rory has developed while working towards his A-level in Fine Art at Kelly College.

During his school years he studied the famous wartime artist John Piper and Robin Armstrong, a local well-established wildlife artist who also works mainly in watercolour. As well as working towards a career as an artist, Rory is strongly motivated by wildlife conservation efforts and has trained as an ecologist, having graduated from the University of Reading with a Master’s degree in Species Identification and Survey Skills. Rory hopes that his work will help to reconnect people with nature by encouraging an awareness and respect for the countryside and its wildlife.

We asked Dave what was the inspiration behind his latest study of Britains largest breeding Falcon ‘Falco peregrinus’, he had the following to say:

The idea behind the piece was an exercise in light & dark really with female at rest in a quarry or rock face just catching the first rays of the day . Sat fluffed with foot up with the rocks & lichens capturing the whole essence of the birds in their preferred habitats & favourite perches . I’m sure you have watched them do the same many times on the cliffs just having a quiet moment to themselves, their predator instincts shut down very momentarily ! Until target sighted both feet down ! plumage slicked back in tight ! head bob & off !

The original picture was painted in Acrylic onto board & the image size was 24”x 19”.

We urge all of our followers to take a further look at Dave’s work by visiting his website dascottartist.com in which lies a wide selection of Art from the Natural World.

We will be posting details on how to place an order as soon as they become available once Dave returns from a holiday abroad.
