“In the early spring, you can look through the forest and see the blossoms of the dogwood like glowing beacons or candles, particularly when the sun shines through and they are backlit. This is the primary effect I wanted to achieve in this painting. There is a lightness, an airiness and a delicacy to everything—a kind of gentleness. This is why I chose the bluebird for this painting of early spring. It doesn’t sit there and sing away defiantly; it has a little, low kind of purring chirp. It is one of the most gentle
of all birds.” – Robert Bateman

Nature as a subject is becoming more and more popular as our environment is in peril. What better subject is there than the beautiful creatures we share this world with? Robert Bateman’s appreciation and understanding of nature are apparent in his paintings. He is able to paint flora and fauna the way your eye would perceive it in real life. It is important that the animal takes full attention. The background becomes muted, and therefore it doesn’t take too much focus away from the subject. His paintings seem effortless and masterful all at once.
