Local People - Doug Eaton
     
 

Wyenot.com would like to introduce local artist, Doug Eaton to those who do not already know him. Doug was born in the Forest of Dean and his interest in art began at the age of eight.

After leaving school, Doug trained at art colleges in Cheltenham, Stroud and Gloucester. When he left college, he worked for Reed's Corrugated Cases, painting part time for eight years. In 1977 however, Doug decided to pursue his artistic career full time.

One of Doug's paintings won a place in the Royal Academy exhibition in 2004, an achievement he intends to try to repeat this year.

Doug has regularly exhibited his works at Ross Heritage Centre and examples of his work are always on display at Halcyon Daze and Bridge House, as well as at his Ross-on-Wye studio.

Future exhibitions have been arranged at Henley and at Beechinghurst. The Henley exhibition runs from 1st to 15th April and Beechinghurst, from 29th May to 4th June, with another arranged for September.

Doug is pictured below, at work in his Ross-on-Wye studio and to the left he can be seen with some of his current works.

Above. The Mute Swan, Cygnus olor . The Mute Swan is Britain's largest wild bird and many can be seen all year round on the River Wye at Ross. The popular belief that a swan can 'break a man's arm' is not entirely true. As you can see, I managed to get very close to this one without so much as a peck.

Below. The Mallard, Anas platyrhynchos is also abundant on the River Wye at Ross.

Bottom. Another photograph of the Robin, Erithacus rubecula - two weeks ago I showed a photo of the robin but the bird was facing the wrong way. This one, photographed at The Dingle, Ross-on-Wye was a little more co-operative.

All three photographs were taken on Monday, 7th February 2005.
