Browse Art By Colour
When Shaun creates a piece of work the process is mainly based on his experimenting with colour and textures combined with his emotions and environment at that time. On completion his aim is for you the viewer to see their own interpretation when looking at the artwork. His paintings are not primarily intended to create definitive images although that is what you the viewer may perceive. However, if asked from his perspective, Shaun would say using multi-layers of paint, textures and colours are more important. With oils and varnish. Colours will vary slightly from screen resolution. Room example only not too scale. Signed on the back. With certificate of authenticity.
Whitby at Dusk
Whitby at dusk when the sun is going down and lighting up the East Cliff is a beautiful sight and in this painting there are dark, moody clouds making it look very dramitic. I have painted it with high quality watercolours on watercolour paper. The price is for it framed in a 16 x 12 inch brown and black wooden frame with an inner gold line and a cream mount as in the photo. If you would like it with just the mount or without either the frame or mount please contact me.
The Awakening is a large oil on canvas painting 48x48x2 inches of a vibrant woodland path in autumn. It is semi abstract and expressionist in style and is another in a series of paintings featuring Sussex inspired woodland landscapes. I often walk in rural England and I particularly like forests and paths in ancient woodland as they have their own atmospheres and hint of magic attached which is unique to them. Some are beautiful and uplifting while some are vaguely sinister. I love to walk along such paths glimpsing fields and hills and lakes through the gaps in the trees where I often spot deer or foxes or birds. The best bit on a sunny day is coming to the end of a path and wondering what I will see next. It is sometimes a stunning landscape and sometimes just a muddy ditch. But whatever it is, it is magical and that is what I am trying to articulate in the painting. It is large, in order to better deliver the impact I wanted, and I used a technique of laying oil paint over many different layers called glazing. It gives the painting different aspects and the colours tend to change throughout the day as the sun moves around it. It is called the awakening as country walks often inspire ideas and hope and alterations in perspective and I hope it will inspire more people to simply go out and walk! It has deep edges, white, and is ready to hang, frame not necessary. https://youtu.be/YsKoxri0PrQ
The Lady Washington Brig
Original pastel painting of the square-rigged sailing vessel, the Lady Washington, seen at anchor in the Pacific Northwest of the USA. My thanks to Michael Ryan for permission to use his wonderful reference photograph. Image size 13.5" x 19.5" (35cm x 50cm), Panpastels and pastel pencils on Pastelmat board (unframed). The first Lady Washington was a 90-ton brig named after Martha Washington. She was the first American-flagged vessel to round Cape Horn, making landfall in Oregon in 1788. She took part in the fur trade and carried tea and porcelain across the Pacific from China. She was the first US ship to reach Japan, but was lost off the Philippines in 1797. The present Lady Washington is a full scale replica, launched in 1989 and sails up and down the coast of California, Oregon and Washington, offering educational programs. (Please note, watermarks do not appear on original image.)
