During May / June of 2014 I took part in Dorset Art Weeks, a fortnight of open studios across the county.
My friend Alice Blogg, a local furniture maker, invited me to paint a mural in her workshop over the period. I chose to paint a huge 20 foot pheasant in the space. These birds are common as muck in the countryside, but they are incredibly beautiful up close. I wanted people to stop and take the time to notice the colours and feathers of these ostentatious and luminous birds. This was the very first large scale mural I ever painted.
