Daniel's paintings depict creatures in all kinds of habitats, but none are more beautiful living environments that those filled with nature's beauty - flowers.
You can win one of four of Daniel's best-loved floral designs as a medium size art print. Enter here by clicking on the name of your preferred creature and filling in the short entry form (then Submit!).
The four creatures you can choose your favourite from are:
The Butterfly fluttering around the blush pink peonies. It's wings are reimagined in Daniel's original watercolour as a hand-tied bouquet of floral delight.
The Meadow Hare rushing through the long grass, disturbing the abundance of wild flowers as it goes. Daisies, buttercups, clover and more delicate petals are swept up on its coat.
The Bumblebee buzzing between the brilliant yellow buttercups. Daniel's hand-painted illustration wove these blooms to form its distinctive stripes.
The grey cat prowling its chosen territory - this cat owns the rose garden. The soft pink of the flowers' petals perfectly compliment his soft grey fur, as he basked beneath them in the sun.

One of the most recognisable songbirds in the garden is the plucky Robin. Being a member of the thrush family, it’s not only cousin to the song thrush and blackbird, but also to the nightingale, so it’s no surprise that the robin has a beautiful voice as well.
The earliest depictions of the use of the heart symbol is believed to derive from the ancient culture of Cyrene, a North African city which was founded by the Greeks in 631 BC, and then later ruled by the Romans.
There’s a lot of ancient mythical beasts which seem pretty isolated, unique to a country’s culture, or even to a specific region. Others, like mermaids, dragons, and giants, are intercultural, being known by many. The Phoenix is one of these mythical superstars, and was known by the Greeks, the Romans, the Egyptians, and even by the Chinese.
