The Covid-19 lockdown restrictions, that were introduced on 23rd March 2020, resulted in temporary studio closures (for 3 months) and meant that painting outside was a prohibited activity for a period of time.
This meant considerable changes to my usual working practice. I took digital photographs of spontaneous flora spotted growing in Wakefield on walks that were part of my daily permitted exercise.
These paintings were made whilst looking closely at some of the digital photographs. The painting process became very, still, painstaking and slow. When all round seemed in flux and certain these were my mindful points of focus.
As we were repeatedly reminded to maintain 2 metres distance from other people I became increasingly aware, and intrigued by the microcosms at our feet.
