Sweet Honey


Dick Twinney is renowned for his detailed, lifelike paintings faithfully depicting wildlife and countryside scenes.
His packed studio is a room in his home in St Columb Major, North Cornwall, where hundreds of wildlife books cram the shelves and where his paintings are on display.The magnificent scenery and the rich and varied wildlife of the South West provide a constant source of inspiration and never ending material for his highly detailed artwork.
A real countryman, Dick always spends several hours each day in the 'field' walking with the family dogs (all rescue dogs ) over the moors, along the coast or in the local woods, observing wildlife in it's natural habitat, constantly on the look-out for that 'special' chance encounter that can be recreated onto canvas.
Meet Honey from Burlorne Tregoose Farm near Wadebridge in Cornwall.

Such talent. It looks so real, it could almost be a photograph.

I absolutely adore pictures of this nature. I have so many scattered about my house and would love for someone to paint Molly and Sparky one day. From a photograph of course, I doubt Sparky in particular would sit still for very long!

It's the left ear which does it for me.

That's a wonderful painting. At first I thought it was a photograph, until I read about it and had another look!
