Synergy of watercolour paint and digital process. During an art residency in Mexico inspired by Homero Aridjis poem I painted the famous volcano Popocatepetl with the legendry Quetzalcoatl emerging from its heart. Red sun in the west. Long fixed rays piercing the valley. Sky tensely blue. Among the volcanic peaks, the smoking crest of Popocatepetl. From its summit, loose rocks roll down, silent, without weight, like a cataclysm without sound. New Fire by Homero Aridjis

My thanks to Ian Unwin for his amazing reference photograph. A magnificent Sumatran tiger charges towards us through the jungle undergrowth in this pastel painting. Sumatran tigers are the smallest of the five tiger subspecies and have narrow stripes. They are critically endangered, with a wild population of as few as 400 individuals. This pastel painting was created using Panpastels and pastel pencils on Pastelmat board.

Soul of Summer
Soul of Summer is a large semi abstract oil painting of a white deer stag in a summer meadow full of wildflowers. The stag is slightly transparent as if he is just materialising. In front of him are vibrantly coloured wild flowers seen against a row of green trees. Towards the back of the field is the suggestion of another field beyond which is in full sunlight. I like the idea that certain places can have spirits protecting them and as I walk about in England I often feel the atmospheres of different places and it intrigues me. The white hart in this painting is loosely based on deer I have seen in and around the Ashdown Forest. I nearly always see deer when I walk and I am always very happy about it. This painting is 40x40x1.5 inches with white edges. No frame needed.
