Title: Shetland Pony
Medium: Oil pastel on velour

This loveable little pony is from Wiltshire, where it shares a field with another Shetland pony and a flock of small white ducks.  Loveable they may be, but Shetland ponies are not to be trifled with.  One night a fox tried to carry off one of the ducks, but the two little ponies came to the rescue and chased the fox away - minus the duck!


Title: Wolf
Medium: Soft pastel on velour

One of my most popular e-workshop subjects featuring Matsi (meaning "sweet and brave"), one of the beautiful wolves from Shaun Ellis's Wolf Centre at Combe Martin, Devon.   Matsi is the pack "tester" or quality controller - "his job is to keep all the others on their mettle; to make sure that they can do the jobs they say they can; and if they don't come up to expectations, then the enforcer ...hands out the discipline" - Shaun Ellis, "The Man Who Lives With Wolves".

Title: Beast of Exmoor!
Medium: Soft pastel on velour

The fabled Beast of Exmoor - fact or fiction?  For many years there have been sightings of a mysterious black beast on Exmoor, widely thought to be a black panther, or melanistic leopard.  No-one has yet managed to photograph this elusive creature., so  I have tried to imagine the Beast as it materialises out of the moorland mist - only to vanish just as quickly, leaving you to wonder just what it was you saw.....
