When Ravens Dream

ravendreaming - When Ravens Dream

I dreamed of a raven with blue eyes holding a blue egg in its beak. When I woke up, I just knew I had to try to capture the ethereal, slightly otherworldy magical quality of that dream. Imagine a dense forest, ancient mossy green trees, a mystical quality to the light, and the raucous call of a raven. Nothing is quite as it first appears in this place. I may visit here again.

Orange Tip Butterfly

orangetip - Orange Tip Butterfly

Spring is arriving and everything is finally waking up after the long winter. I have always admired these tiny flashes of colour as they flit through the countryside. The Orange Tip is a small butterfly, with white wings, and only the male displays the prominent orange splash at the wing tip.

Small Pearl Bordered Fritillary

PearlBorderedFritillaryweb - Small Pearl Bordered Fritillary

The Small Pearl Bordered Fritillary is a beautiful British butterfly. When its wings are open it shows a complex checkerboard orange and black wing pattern. I think the pattern on the underside of its wings is even prettier.

This is part of my ongoing ‘Butterflies of the World’ series.

Arwen the Black Kite

ArwenBlackKite - Arwen the Black Kite

The beautiful Black Kite is not a native species in the UK. This is a painting of Arwen, one of the birds at Kielder Water Birds of Prey Centre, in Northumberland. Arwen is quite a character who likes to steal people’s hats and fly off with them.

Many thanks to Ray and his team for letting me photograph and draw their beautiful birds. If you happen to be in the area, do go and visit.

Speckled Wood Butterfly

woodlandbrownweb - Speckled Wood Butterfly

Speckled Wood butterflies always remind me of dappled sunlight on the woodland floor. Little patches of springtime, flitting around in late May and early June. They may not be as colourful as some of our other butterfly species, nonetheless, they are quite beautiful.

Eastern Tiger Swallowtail

swallowtailsmall - Eastern Tiger Swallowtail

There are many different Swallowtail butterflies around the world, and the Eastern Tiger Swallowtail is one of my favourites. I love the way its striking black and cream markings continue along its body. It was a real pleasure to paint this one as part of my ongoing ‘Butterflies of the World’ series.

Return of Summer – Painted Lady Butterfly

butterflysigned - Return of Summer - Painted Lady Butterfly

The beautiful painted lady butterfly migrates between Africa and Europe every year. Its arrival on our shores heralds the return of Summer. When people think of creatures migrating, it is often birds that come to mind. It’s truly incredible to think how far these insects travel, on their delicate, brightly coloured wings.
