In the Butterfly House

I said I’d try and draw out in the woods as much as I could, well, I’ve been as good as my word. I’ve been drawing in the only Lancashire woods with tropical heating. I love it in the Butterfly House at Williamson Park. I’m planning a new series of work based in here, not sure yet where its going but somewhere colourful it would seem… fitting for the shortest and darkest day of the year.

I love the way the Victorian Art Nouveau architecture echoes the twisting and curved shapes of the tropical plants.

Happy Solstice! Come back sun…
