An Isle of Man artist has reached the finals of the BBC Wildlife Artist of the Year competition.

Dr Jeremy Paul from Colby has had two paintings selected to go through to the final round.

The competition is run by the BBC wildlife magazine and attracts thousands of international entries.

One of the paintings chosen by judges, a tree sparrow on a washing line with soft toys, was recently exhibited at the Sayle Gallery in Douglas.

In 2011 Dr Paul's painting, Southern Ocean - Wandering Albatross, won the Frozen Planet category of the competition.

Dr Paul lives in the Isle of Man with his wife and two children.
