Additional Information

The elegance of a pure white Great Egret, is the subject of this painting.  White seems to reflect a pastel version of just about every colour in the rainbow, and I certainly found that to be the case in painting this bird.  As with most of my paintings, the background went down first, before I had decided on which birds to paint.  I chose a simple pallete of blue, black, white and silver and predominantly Arte Deco patterns.  The choice of a great egret as the main subject was a simple one, with its lovely recurved lines suggesting very much an Art Nouveau vibe.

I am happiest with my work when my paintings bring together many things that I love. These include, firstly, a delight in the natural world surrounding me.  Layers of colour and pattern underlie my paintings, often combining natural plant forms with other elements from different times and cultures. My current work brings together a diverse range of influences including Asian philosophy and traditional art, textile pattern, bird-watching and the phenomenology of perception. As with most of my current work, this painting includes some areas of reflective metallic paint which gives the painting a changeable appearance under different light conditions.
