What? Where?

I have just completed my little group of meerkats in time for the Illminster exhibition 'Diversity' which is being held at the Meeting House in Illminster from the 6th to 18th September together with Pauline Longley and Diana Connor. If you are in the area then please pop in, we would love to see you. I will be showing my wildlife drawings in graphite, coloured pencils and pastels.

I find these little chaps so engaging and amusing. I had some reference photos of them and grouped them together to make a panoramic composition which I think works well. I used graphite again for this one....I seem to be on a graphite kick at the moment. The paper I used is Mellotex ultra white and the size is 20" x 9" so each individual is fairly small.


  1. I think everybody must love meerkats. I have a huge collection of photos of the meerkats at Port Lympne in Kent - really must do something with them.

    Lovely artwork as ever Bev ... good luck with the exhibition.

  2. They have turned out great Bev, love the title.

  3. Thank you Sue, yes exhibitions can be a bit hit and miss but we are keeping everything crossed.

    Pauline, thanks. I might change the title to 'Wassup?' instead, a suggestion from Kiran at AP. I quite liked it myself!

  4. Thankyou very much for your comment on my blog. I just wanted to say that I love your work! I have been trawling through your blog and I adore every piece.
