Mouth & foot artist captures sunrise in colourful painting at Stonehenge’s summer solstice

A disabled artist who was born without arms painted a beautiful sunrise over Stonehenge for summer solstice today (Thurs) – using his mouth.

Talented Tom Yendell, 56, was among the 10,000 pilgrims who visited the prehistoric monument to greet the longest day of the year.

Foot and mouth painter captured the moment with an exquisite watercolour of the iconic landscape.

Father-of-two Tom said: “Stonehenge is a monumental British landmark which I have been keen to paint for years.

“Painting live at summer solstice was the perfect opportunity to celebrate the 100th anniversary and create memories for years to come.”

The piece brought to life vivid colours of sunrise between the ring of standing stones.

Tom, from Hampshire, was born without arms as a result of his mother having been prescribed the drug Thalidomide during pregnancy.
