I love finding feathers and have a small stash of them. On the left is a buzzards feather, then a Jays and a greater spotted woodpecker. I have seen many of these birds around lately and many lapwings in the fields, hunting food.
Above is a study of butterflies and their caterpillar food plants.
Common blue with birdsfoot trefoil,
orange tip with ladies smock and
dark green fritillary with a common violet.
Next I'll be working on a large painting of species to be found in a Welsh upland oakwood. All these are for the exhibition at Elan.
