"The artist...is also a born adventurer. His explorations, unlike those of a tourist, are rewarded by the discovery of beauty spots unmentioned in the guide books, and with tireless curiosity and an exceptional proneness to wonderment, he will come upon objects of remarkable interest overlooked or even shunned by more disciplined observers."

Recent Fieldwork

I've not had much time for field sketching recently, having been busy with other work. But this Speckled Wood Butterfly was sunning in the garden on friday evening as I was cutting the grass. It was much more restless than the last individual that frequented the garden, rarely remaining long in one place and this was all I could manage before it eventually departed.
