you so much for sharing your experience and journey as an artist. I am
not sure how much the Chief has helped and how much is your willingness
to experiment and learn.
I have never used gesso before, just worked on water colour paper, and this has opened my eyes to a whole new world of “pushing pigments” around.
Above is a link to a digital resource that is, I think, your wonderful Gould League book.
I am totally inspired. Not sure where this will take me but certainly another look at the water based mediums.
I love the little wren – perfect for the spot

We have known Paul since the mid ‘70s and had
become close friends when he bravely abandoned his full time job and
risked all by taking a punt on his skill as an artist.
His beloved wife Pam was very supportive as were all his friends who absolutely knew what a great skill he possessed.
have watched him evolve over the past forty odd years from a
struggling, but extremely talented painter of children’s murals, to the
highly successful, award winning artist that he is today.
success as an accomplished contemporary artist is even more profound as
it was achieved in the absence of any formal training.
He has managed to maintain a currency of style and content not often found in this area of artistic pursuit.
is also an in demand painting instructor on a national basis –
travelling extensively throughout Australia to share his talent.

I would like to introduce you to an extraordinary talented wildlife artist, Paul Margoscy.
My wife and I met Paul at wildlife artists exhibition in Melbourne in 1996. Paul won first prize on that night and we were captivated by the detail of the birds that he included in his painting. We were so enthralled with his work, that we commissioned him to paint some pheasants for us.
We have met with Paul many times over the years since and have attended many of his exhibitions which have displayed his works. Each time he holds an exhibition, the viewer is taken on a journey through the natural wonder of our Australian native birdlife.
I have seen the works of other artists who have painted birds, but I have not seen many others who have captured the fine detail of such a wide variety of birds that are the hallmark of Paul’s skills as an artist.
Whether the bird that he paints is alone or with others or is in flight or still, Paul not only depicts the environment that the bird lives in but provides a visual experience to the viewer that encourages them to find out more about Paul and the very extensive list of paintings that he has done.
His work is not only recognised here in Australia, but he has many of his works included in both private and public collections in Asia and Europe.
Paul’s artistic talents are legendary.
