It has been back to ballet for inspiration recently, It will always go back to Ballet for me, that’s where it all started and that’s where it will keep going back to, no doubt. I have been going through the Royal Opera House archive pictures and found some most amazing pictures I simply had to paint, No.1 being this one: Steven McRae and Sarah Lamb in rehearsal for Metamorphosis: Titan…
I absolutely loved painting this piece, I know I always say that, but its true ;) There were many more ROH pictures I would love to paint , so you will probably see them soon. I hope you like this one.
I actually have both prints and the Original piece available to purchase, so pop over to the shop if you are interested….

I think as I’ve gotten older I’ve noticed things more: like trees and butterflies and wild flowers and all the different types of birds, and wildlife around me, things that have been there all the time but suddenly I’m noticing them more. Recently I’ve been putting rich tea biscuits on my windowsill for the birds and it’s amazing to see them up close, pecking away. To see their gorgeous feathers and little hints of personality. Even Sparrows have their beauty, and you’ve got to agree, these are most definitely stunning!…
These amazing photographs were taken by John & Fish, they are brother and sister photography team from Taiwan who spend most of their weekends traversing their wonderful island taking pictures of its beautiful birds, click over to their flick page for many more amazing photos to favorite (and favorite, favorite, favorite, definitely favorite, favorite…).
