The mighty Khao Sok Rainforest in Thailand was where I chose to research the rich variety of wildlife to be found in jungles of Asia. These forests are home to Sumatran Tigers, the Clouded Leopard and of course, the iconic Great Hornbill. I lived in the tree house shown above, which all sounds like paradise, until you consider the numerous large and intimidating insects that chose to stay with me. I even had an entire nest of green ants migrating back and forth across my bed! The rainforest itself however, was breathtakingly beautiful. The painting below was of an area about 20 meters from my tree house. It was early morning and already incredibly hot. The sun was rising behind the limestone cliffs and the moment I saw it I knew it was a scene I would paint.
