1. Bluebells at Scathes Wood, Ightham

Oil on canvas, 60x90cm

The light, colour and scent of bluebells in the woods around Ightham were truly mesmerising in May. I wanted to capture the warm purple glow of that sunny morning.

'Rumination

1. A careful or considered thought 

2. Of an animal, such as cattle, the action of chewing the cud'

Having gradually moved to vegetarianism over the past two years, this portrait of a beautiful Highland Cow seemed to reflect that journey. I particularly enjoy painting animal portraits - contemplating their facial features, taking in all their quirks and just seeing them for the individuals they are.

3. Morning Sun on the Meadow, 20x20cm, oil on canvas

One of a series of small meadow paintings. I'm fascinated by the changing colours of grasses and wild flowers according to light levels, weather and time of day.
