It feels like a million years since I last painted. If I don’t soon my soul will fall apart. So… rhino portrait. Do I go big, or do I go small? Ones easier to potentially post. One might be more striking? Either could end in the bin. @williamespring William Spring l Natural History Artist Videos and pictures

Mount cutting with dyscalculia? It’s a journey. The solution? Put your shoes and socks back on and ask your wife to do the sums. @williamespring William Spring l Natural History Artist Videos and pictures

After a frankly distributive and unsettling few weeks I’m getting back into my stride with a boarlet. Which may or may not progress. More an exercise at the moment. @williamespring William Spring l Natural History Artist Videos and pictures

About 18 months ago I decided that I would spend the rest of my life painting animals. All going well so far (mostly) but have you got any idea how many there are? There’s millions of them!

Starting to think about sales for my ‘not for the book’ work. It’s been so long... how do you work out a price? I don’t have a lot of precedent in regards to this work. 5p? A million? I dunno! @williamespring William Spring l Natural History Artist Videos and pictures
