Goldfinches on Thistles was inspired by David Gordon’s photo taken of Warren Farm, a local nature reserve which is threat of being repurposed. Goldfinches on Thistles is part of a series of paintings of birds seen in the reserve, to highlight the importance of preserving wildlife, especially with urban surroundings. I was also inspired by Japanese Paintings to help influence the composition and colour scheme. It is one of a series of Japanese inspired watercolours of birds.
My love of nature and wildlife is at the heart of this his collection. I hope it reminds people of the importance and beauty of nature for our physical and mental wellbeing.
