Ah well. Just got my rejection from the David Shepherd Wildlife Artist of the Year competition. This was my entry, called 'Chaos' which is coloured pencil and designer gouache on black paper. I'm glad I entered though as it's a great cause and all of the entry fees go toward saving endangered species.
The DSWF website http://www.davidshepherd.org/ is well worth a visit, with news about the work they are doing and some impressive examples of wildlife artwork from the Shepherd family and many others. I'll be entering again next year (must try harder) meanwhile this painting is now available for sale on MightyFineArt .
