Swallows are such agile fliers.  The parent deftly hovers whilst delivering food to one of its brood of fleglings perched on guttering with a slate roof behind. The chick on the right looks decidedly unhappy that it is not his turn to be fed.


I enjoy painting on block canvases as I start with the story on the front and continue it as I paint around the sides.  I have tried to capture the effect of the hover by blurring the wing tips and the very individual expressions on the faces of the youngsters.
