In my painting ‘Dig on Down‘ I investigated our place in the natural world and our relationship with horses. In painting that, I intrigued myself with the prehistoric cave art of Lascaux, France, and Altamira, Spain, and wanted to look harder some more. The cave paintings were made 20,000-years ago by our ancestors before ‘art’ as we know it today existed. I also looked at an Exmoor pony called Nutmeg who lives at the end of the lane where I live. She looks just like a tarpan – a species of extinct wild horse – and like one of the horses painted on the cave walls. The result is this painting ‘Prehistoric stampede’. I used deep, rich, glowing earthy colours.
This painting celebrates the incredible work of my hero, the scandalously unsung Alfred Russel Wallace. Wallace came up with the theory of natural selection independently of Darwin and established the study of biogeography.
This painting is no longer available, and is shown here for your viewing pleasure and for the glory of Wallace.

When you visit the University of Oxford’s Natural History Museum its a job to know where to look - at the marvellous exhibits? Or at the magnificent architecture? In this painting you'll spot a dodo, some dinosaur footprints, the swifts that nest in the tower, a dinosaur skeleton and so much more! My favourite bit is the frog in the jar. What's your's? The title comes from Charles Darwin's book 'The Origin of Species' in which he wrote of his theory of evolution by natural selection: "There is grandeur in this view of life..." The print is last one of a limited edition (of 4) hand-made drypoint tinted with watercolour - 450mm x 700mm.
