My Painting of the Week | Spring 2020

See wildlife reflected through the seasons with my latest ‘painting of the week’ blog post. I update this regularly with paintings and prints chosen to sync with the seasons. If you would like to browse all my fine art paintings and limited edition prints, click here.

I paint in a detailed, precise style using both acrylic and oils to reproduce each feather or whisker. I want my paintings to be as lifelike as possible and consequently, I spend much of my time watching and photographing animals in the wild before I pick up my paintbrushes. The results are detailed portraits of an animal I know well. Follow the links that accompany each painting to read their individual stories.

Colourful Kingfisher

Wildlife Painting of the Week

This painting of a kingfisher perched on willow catkins evokes serenity and peace. The vibrant colours of the kingfisher’s feathers sing out against my green backdrop, celebrating springtime and the natural world. I hope you can find solace through my artworks at this difficult time.

Badgers: A Playful Bunch

Wildlife Painting of the Week

In the last few weeks, all our lives have transformed dramatically and the majority of us are now isolated at home. I am continuing to paint the wildlife I watch in my garden and I hope my paintings bring you solace in these difficult times. Below is my latest original painting featuring badgers. I built a badger sett in my garden rigged with cameras and when I introduced three orphaned cubs into the sett I was able to watch how they interacted underground. They are such playful creatures and I hope my painting brings that across. Click on the image below to watch a short film of the painting as I complete it.

Long-Tailed Tits on Blackthorn

Wildlife Painting of the Week

The dainty flowers of blackthorn blossom are the perfect backdrop for these long-tailed tits as I think they complement the delicate pinks of the birds. I often use tree blossom in my compositions, perching wrens, robins and other birds on their branches to offset the colours in sringtime. In summer, I switch to wildflowers growing in the grass verges and pose wild mammals among them.

Boxing Hares

Wildlife Painting of the Week

Spring is almost upon us and so the obvious choice for my painting of the week is this limited edition print of Boxing Hares. Hares will box one another in vicious spats as the female tests the virility of the male before mating and although this behaviour is usually associated with springtime, it actually takes place all year.
