He said: “After going on a safari last year to Kenya and Tanzania, I was inspired by the light and the colours of Africa and have since created a new collection of paintings.”

The exhibition is free of charge and will be on display in the library until Sunday, June 29.

Mr Naish also has a gallery at his house at 140 Vines Lane in Droitwich.
