I’m British, so I am obsessed with all things meteorological! In the past few years I have painted the Shipping Forecast, and used the idea of a weather map to paint my opinion about Brexit (warning, it’s not favourable!) So it was inevitable that at some point I should paint a Weather Map
On my weather map I have stated facts, for example the hottest, coldest, windiest and wettest places. I’ve also illustrated weather folklore and it turns out there’s a lot of that!
The British weather is influenced primarily by two major factors. The Gulf Stream and the Jet Stream. Between them, they bring the variation and changability of the British climate. We get it all – rain, sun, wind, snow, and sometimes a lot of it in quick succession.
A signed print of this painting at size A2 will be a perfect gift for weather watchers. Or just treat yourself!
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.
