Robert is one of the country's leading wildlife artists and is dedicated to capturing his images in the field.
His passion for sketching and observing birds and animals in their own environment gives his work great freedom and a real sense of immediacy. All of his watercolours and many of his printing plates are taken from life.
Robert works mainly in watercolour, oils, woodcut and drypoint. The drypoints, and some of the woodcuts, are printed in black and hand-coloured with watercolour. Whilst others involve the cutting and printing of a separate block for each colour.
