There is a showcase of two members of the Society of Wildlife Artists at the Donald Watson Gallery of the Scottish Ornithologists’ Club in Aberlady. Kittie Jones completes most of her work while drawing from life outdoors, with other sketches providing the starting point for printmaking. She explains, ‘The energy in the work comes from the constantly changing elements of the natural world – birds moving in and out of vision and the shifting quality of weather and light.’ Wynona Legg uses materials such as ink and graphite, which offer the immediacy she needs to draw from life. Most of the work in this exhibition was created during lockdown using webcams. She says, ‘I could watch animals around the globe move across my laptop screen and find their way into my attic studio.’
