Lovely Kingfishers

I still have an obsession with drawing Kingfishers. I love their shapes and colours. I decided to make a new print range using blues like before but also hotter colours like yellows and oranges, to echo their plumage.Being able to use colour like this is what always draws me back to screen printing. It is a real chance to develop my pen drawings. I hope you like them…

A few weeks ago on the sunniest day I went for a walk in the hills where I live.Every Friday I walk my friends dog and it gives me the perfect excuse to get outside (I am inside so much printing or painting).

I took lots of photographs as it was so beautiful. There was a slight breeze and warm sunshine. I knew this little walk would provide an inspiration for new paintings and it did;

I don’t really know why my colours turn out like this but anyway this is my slice of a lovely day.

This painting and  more will be at my exhibition ‘Under the same sky’ at Heart Gallery. It will include lots of landscapes of Hebden Bridge and places close to my heart. The exhibition starts on the 8th of September, I hope to see you there.
