I’m very excited to be about to start a new themed series of paintings of local #seabirds for a client.
I’ve just finished an architectural commission of an old family home which i know has meant so much and brings so many memories back for that client. Seeing how my paintings impact on clients really means a lot to me and I feel a huge responsibility when i am trying to capture other people’s memories.
However i am excited for this new series.
Birds are some of my favourite subjects to paint – I love the challenge of trying to capture their lightness and “flightness” and the luminescence of light on feathers.
Better still, this series will feature all the birds i can see in my beloved Dundrum (County Down, Northern Ireland), where i spend my #summerholidays every year with family.
Dundrum is definitely my happy place – a peaceful, beautiful and back-to-basics-sand-in- your-toes-in-tune-with-nature haven. I LOVE IT
Anyway, I’m just on the brink of starting the series, so watch this space and in the meantime here are some of my favourites from the birds I’ve already painted – you can see more on my portfolio page, with limited edition prints available to buy in my online shop. I hope you enjoy.
