Phileas the Pheasant
I find pheasants fascinating to look at. These long-tailed game birds have rich chestnut, golden brown and black markings on their bodies and tails. Their dark green heads create a striking contrast against the bright red face wattling.
I was inspired to paint Phileas after a trip to my childhood home on Exmoor. Pheasants roam the moors in abundance and their distinctive crow fills the landscape. Seeing a pheasant reminds me of that feeling of tranquility and joy that being outdoors in nature brings.
