Stroud,Gloucestershire, England, UK


I scratched my head for such a long time wondering what this painting needed. Of course, it needed pink! The tranquillity of the wetlands is off set by the wildfowl. I had no idea how much the flamingos were influencing my colour palette until this wonderful painting came along. I think the green sits just deliciously alongside the coral pink.


The reflective quality of water is dazzling on bright days at Slimbridge. The vastness of the wetlands creates huge swathes of light far off in the distance. I was desperate to capture not only the reflective qualities of water both at my feet but also on the horizon.


Back to the pink...The flamingos had been ever present in my mind's eye all week. Although this is not a painting of flamingos, it is very much about their presence at WWT Slimbridge.


This tranquil wetland scene was painted at WWT Slimbridge whilst I was Artist in Residence in September.'
