Heading Home

For those of you new to my work, this is the painting that most people associate with me. It’s painted in acrylics and was inspired by rockhoppers on Saunders Island in the Falklands. It was a fantastic end to a hard day’s sketching, sitting at the foot of the cliffs and watching the penguins coming in from the sea. Black-browed albatrosses were gliding out in the bay, turkey vultures soared overhead, and I’d rarely been happier.

Heading Home was painted when I returned to the UK. It was supposed to be just a quick and straightforward picture, but took much longer and turned out much better than I could have imagined.

If you are new to my art I hope you’ve enjoyed this first image, and please visit my website to see more examples.

    Certainly one of the most lifelike penquin paintings I’ve ever seen. They just keep coming out of the picture towards you.

    To own a print of this wonderful painting is a must surely.

      Certainly is a fine painting, most likely the best penquin painting that Jackie has done to date, but where is it, who owns it now? Is it held in Nature in Art?
