Was it the sound of beaters? Is there a gun about? Balancing on slender legs, with one fierce oval, amber-coloured eye resting in a pool of short, flaming-red feathers and flanked by those of emerald green, a ring-necked pheasant turns his head over his shoulder with golden beak perched over a henna-coloured ruff and speckled wing feathers, as a barren branch creaks in a Winter gust. Brilliant in execution, The Pheasants of Snow Hollow offers a beauty to tally with nature’s own under an uplifting bright-blue sky. Burnt ambers, cadmium yellows and crimson-orange hues display the rich colours of a proud, even regal cock-pheasant, against a crisp, snow- clad hollow where trees disappear neatly up into the rim of the vase as the soft-browns of hen-pheasants form elegant silhouettes against the dark, robust trunks of twisted trees. The whole composition forms one continuous scene where you half expect to be startled by the shattering squawks of a cock pheasant in hiding, watching the ladies preen and bask in a dazzling white cover of snow. Those with a good-heart will testify to the blood-curdling cackle and whirling of wings from The Pheasants of Snow Hollow.
