On the Easel : Symbiosis

DSCF0241
After working on a couple of commissions I’ve settled back to my signature style. This style for me is the perfect combination of colour and theme; I love being able to use rich colour combinations with line and shapes to convey all manner of subjects, which convey different emotions to the viewer.

This piece, featuring an African Buffalo and an Oxpecker, highlights the unique relationships between different species and their relationship with their habitat. An intimate and complex balance that can easily be tipped.

If you want to learn about some truly amazing symbiotic relationships in nature; watch David Attenborough’s Kingdom of Plants. Maybe plants are even more fascinating than their animal counterparts….maybe they will get their own series of paintings sometime soon…
