The exhibition of artwork resulting from my Artist in Residency at the Highland Wildlife Park, near Kincraig, has now ended. It was a very enjoyable experience for me and I have now sold six of the pictures. The remaining artwork is still for sale if you would like to get in contact with me. A big thank you to the staff who were very helpful during the residency.

Two new paintings

PGPM She walks in fields of Gold

PGMP 5 swans

Two paintings recently finished. Both are of local views and experiences in the Cairngorms. The female pheasant I saw regularly on my way to work, and on one day, the sun was shining on the dry dead grass turning it into a golden streak across the moor. The five whooper swans were swimming as part of a wintering flock on a wee lochan near Boat of Garten. For more details, please see my gallery of work page.

Winter Whoopers on Loch Insh

Finally finished today. This painting is proving difficult to photograph because of the contrast between the darker and lighter areas.

These graceful migrating swans spend their winters in the Highlands before migrating north to Iceland for the summer. One of my favourite birds from the days when we lived at Welney in Norfolk.
