Modern contemporary painting of a field of fresh summer flowers depicted in warm metallic tones. Set against a dark graphite background this painting has a modern feel and will complement most colour schemes. The light shines off the flowers accentuating the texture and bringing the painting to life from all angles. This painting has been finished with a protective satin varnish and with the colour continuing round the edges of the canvas it is ready for immediate hanging.
Prayer to a Fox
An original gouache painting of a fox entitled 'Prayer for a Fox'. This piece includes the wiccan symbols for 'intelligence' and 'blessings' as well as a symbol for home protection. In short I wish the clever fox well in its life but suggest that it stays away from my chickens! I have used the finest Winsor and Newton designer gouache paints (including a glorious gold!) and Indian Ink for the black background, all painted on 300gsm hot pressed, acid free, smooth watercolour paper. 10% of the sale of this item will go to a wildlife charity.
Angel Escapes to the Sea
Angel Escapes to the Sea is another in a series of big vibrant blue underwater paintings of fish in a blue ocean. This particular fish is a golden angel fish and was painted using gold and pearlescent paints to make her sparkle. Angle fish like this would not really be found in the ocean but I liked the idea of her escaping and being free - hence the title. It is a painting about having lots of space and freedom and being happy in solitude. It seemed fitting to paint it during the Corvid 19 lock down so I can escape myself a bit - plus anyone else who wants to! The painting is mostly blue and turquoise and focuses on the sparkling waves at the top and the light patterns made on the sandy bottom of the sea by the light that bounces off them. It tries to capture that lovely holiday feeling you get in the sea on sunny days. Dedicated to anyone who would like a bit of freedom right now. It is 40x40x1.5 inches, white edges, ready to hang, no frame needed. Video: https://youtu.be/6qcqoLUY3Qk
