Adonis Blue - framed

SKU: 3191001



Selected for Society of Wildlife Artists 'The Natural Eye 2020' exhibition at the Mall Galeries, London, 28th October to 8th November 2020.

Adonis Blue is one of a series of paintings inspired by walks in nature reserves in and around the beautiful Chiltern Hills. Adonis Blue butterflies are one of our rarest butterflies. I saw them at Yoesden nature reserve flitting above the grasses like small pieces of cerulean sky that had fallen from the clouds. I felt uplifted!


The Chilterns are a crescent of chalk hills running primarily through Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire. The nature reserves protect ancient pastures that are home to rare species of flora and fauna.

    Frame is 43.5 X 43.5 X3.5 cm (~ 17 X 17 X 1.25 inches)

    The picture is finished with a protective wax finish which gives it a gorgeous subtle sheen. The sides of the panel are painted off white.

    I offer a full refund if the picture and frame are returned undamaged in their original packing within 28 days. Return postage is at the buyer’s expense.


    Cost of shipping will depend on where in the world you want it shipped and whether or not you want it framed. I wrap the pictures securely with bubble wrap in a cardboard box. I re-use packing material where possible to keep down costs and reduce landfill.

    Please contact me for costs.

    You can also collect the picture from me direct.
