HOW GARY "EMBELLISHES" A LIMITED EDITION PRINT
1 min 17 secs
This short video shot in timelapse shows Gary drawing for a couple of hours on one of his limited edition prints. This process of "embellishing" a print places the work somewhere between a limited edition print and an original.
Gary has embarked on this procress for his solo charity show in aid of EIA and Born Free's work to save elephants.
Almost 50 "embellished" limited edition prints will be on sale at his central London solo charity show April 18th (private view) open to the public free entry 19th-23rd April 2016. To bid on these prints watch out for the auction page in a few weeks.
AMAZING 1,000 DOLPHIN SUPERPOD!
This breath-taking video was shot by Gary's partner Dave on a small speedboat about 50km off the Costa Rica Pacific coast. The sea was literally bubbling with action as more than 1,000 spinner dolphins raced, played and leapt over what was a completely calm surface.
You will see wildlife artist Gary Hodges with his camera (40sec) photographing the extraordinarily exciting sight. The voice is that of marine biologist Shawn Larkin from Costa Cetacea, who with his wife Vanessa had guided Gary and Dave to this amazing wildlife spectacle!
