Paintings of Wildlife in Spring | Easter Art Collection

I’ve curated a collection of my favourite paintings of wildlife in springtime to lift your spirits as the sun begins to shine. I’ve chosen the creatures you are most likely to see at this time of year and put them together for you here.

I hope you enjoy the collection and if you would like to see more please visit my online shop.


Spring Blossom |Paintings of Wildlife in Spring

Set against a backdrop of spring blossom, this collection of bird paintings sings with the colours and the spirit of spring.

Birds are starting to nest and are visible now as they busily flit about amongst the blossom  I often like to pose birds on branches with blossom as I think they make perfect compositions.

Easter Ducklings | Paintings of Wildlife in Spring

It wouldn’t be springtime without images of ducklings and chicks. The painting below, Just Hatched, is so popular at this time of year I’ve even used it on some of my giftware, including a beautiful kitchen worktop saver: Click here to view.

Easter Chick | Paintings of Wildlife in Spring
The baby bird in the painting below is a lapwing. I watched this adorable chick as it hatched from its eggs. Lapwings often lay their eggs in open arable fields and their survival is precarious at this time of year when farmers are ploughing. I watched this one, however, on a strip of conservation land especially set aside for lapwings.

The sound of a curlew’s call ringing out is something I always associate with the onset of spring and of course these adorable chicks are the epitome of the season.

Read about how I watched the parent birds fiercely defend these chicks from a pheasant that strolled a little too close to the nest by clicking here. 


Easter Bunnies | Paintings of Wildlife in Spring

Female hares visit their young so infrequently that the sight of tiny leverets in the fields by themselves at Easter time is thought to be the source of the Easter Bunny myth. Whether this is true or not bunnies have certainly become the emblem of Easter and chocolate ones at that. Personally I prefer wild leverets any day.

Easter is lambing season here place in the UK when the fields in the countryside come alive with these bouncing, bleating, lovable creatures I painted this some years ago but it has remained a popular print and is available on my placemats here.

  1. All your artwork fills me with awe.The amount of detail you show is stunning. Thank you for sharing your work.

  2. You either didn’t read my comment or didn’t comprehend it. Art does not require skill. You seem to like paintings that are pretty, and that’s fine. I’m not going to tell you what you should and shouldn’t like, but criticizing an artist for lack of craftsmanship is like criticizing an architect for not knowing how to hang sheetrock. Picasso was an awful painter, a great artist, but an awful painter.
