Carl now paints well-observed traditional farmyard scenes and wildlife in close detail and vibrant tones, specialising in miniaturist paintings in oils. His reputation developed as a leading painter of chickens in the country, and he soon added ducks, mice, badgers, red squirrels, foxes, hedgehogs, butterflies and other countryside creatures to his repertoire.
He occasionally paints Still Life of a stunning three dimensional quality. The hallmark of his work is the particularly fine detail and intense rich colours, resulting in a painting of rare quality, depth and charm. His work is in an increasing number of collections both in the UK and around the world.
