The Dawn Chorus Collection

Dawn Chorus Nature’s greatest orchestra rivals many naturally occurring miracles each morning, as bird species from around the world mark their territory, make their presence known to mates, or call upon their flock in an enthusiastic symphony. A dawn chorus. Ranging from the beautifully delicate or well camouflaged species found in English woodlands, to the ostentatious birds of paradise parading around Indonesian forests. The intricate markings used for mating or territorial displays make perfect subjects and the plethora of species to celebrate is infinite. By encompassing the subjects in the beautiful colour ways that make them so mesmerising, I have hoped to capture the nature of each species in full concert. With extravagant blends of bright colours and bold textures, mixed with subtle areas of calm and reserve this collection of oil paintings was created to compliment the avian subjects through thoughtful composition and a love for the elegance of birds all around the world. For any information on this collection contact info@wishboneart.co.uk or one of the many wonderful galleries listed on my website here! …

Very Short YouTube video – Oil Painting of starlings in flight

I am always looking at new ways to document the process of my work, I have done this in many ways already through creating time lapsed YouTube videos, to writing about it, to showing progress photos of close ups, sets ups and various stages of painting. One of the most asked questions about my YouTube videos was if I could use a higher quality devise to record from because the videos were not clear enough. For me, with painting it is all about the visual and if the smallest of brush strokes cannot be seen then there is no point, these are the marks that make up the painting as a whole. Ask and you shall receive! I am now working on getting to grips with better filming equipment to show more accurately what I am working on, and here is a very small taster of ‘Arcus Flight’ with a shot of John Frusciante. (Original painting sold, but soon available as a Limited Edition print) Make sure you subscribe to my channel here ready for more videos …
