Special Art Exhibit
Tim Wootton's art displayed at PPVC in Rockland
Project Puffin Visitor Center in Rockland. His work features watercolor and acrylic paintings of seabirds from across the Atlantic. Wootton paints from life, near his home in Orkney, Scotland but these northern latitude seabird species are also found along Maine island shores. His paintings show a deep understanding of bird behavior, anatomy, and have an indefinable quality that brings the scene to life. Some even include field notes incorporated into the art.
Tim’s book Drawing & Painting Birds was published and reprinted in 2011. He writes and illustrates articles on Ecology, conservation and the natural world (Birds Illustrated Magazine, Birdwatching Magazine, Scottish Islands Explorer, Artists & Illustrators Magazine, Yorkshire Post Saturday Supplement, etc.)
The art is for sale at Project Puffin’s online store through the end of October. Part of the proceeds benefits seabird conservation at Audubon’s Maine seabird sanctuaries.
