Wildlife in landscape and fishing scene painting

A resident of Fulford Harbor, British Columbia, Robert Bateman became one of the foremost wildlife painters of the late 20th century. This statement is reinforced by the fact he was voted Favorite Artist by readers of Wildlife Art magazine in a millennium poll. He regards each work as a challenge, and is leery of becoming a formula painter, something that he feels is a plague on wildlife art.
