The results are detailed portraits of an animal I know well. Follow the links that accompany each painting to read their individual stories. If you would […]

A precious few animals in the UK wear white for winter A handful of animal species have the remarkable ability to turn white in winter in order to match the snows of the season and the transition, which in the UK applies to ptarmigan – a genus of bird related to grouse – mountain hares and stoats, is something that fascinates me.
