suburbia, 24"x24" oil on canvas by Harry Carr this is the first painting of my new series " civilisation by night". in this piece i was exploring how the roads and motorways flow into each other and create the basis of mass travel and civilisation as we know it. the motorways are very similar to arteries in our bodies, in the way that they carry all our food and fuel. if a particular motorway becomes blocked it is the same as an artery getting blocked. the food which is the "blood" cant get through to the "organs" which is the cities. this then starves the cities of nutrients to survive and prosper. this is evident in war zones where roads get cut off, so supplies cant get through. bad weather can also restrict the flow of supplies which has been evident in the last week. this piece was created by using pointillism in a series of colours one on top of each other. i started with a cream colour then a darker yellow. on top of the yellow i painted a dark red colour along with a vibrant orange. this was done to create depth. i then added in some highlights of viridian green and titanium white, these colours also enhance the other colours like the yellow. my main priority in this piece was to highlight the importance of the roads. to do this i put a layer of a cream colour down, quite thickly. then added darker tones over that to create a contrast between the two colours, this then in tern intensified the contrast between the roads and the city lights. and to show that the roads are more important than the towns and cities.
Bluebell Invasion - a spring woodland abstract with bluebells
A 36 x 48 x 1.5 inches large landscape oil painting of a Sussex spring wood at bluebell time. The painting is abstract, art nouveau and expressionist is style. It shows a view through a spring forest with bluebells ranging from blue to violet and then pink and trees in all shades of green. The paint was thick and blended and quite sumptuously used. Vertical brush marks help to create the dappled effect of sunlight through trees that you get in woodland environments. I think we all love bluebells. It is the time of year that woodland is most magical and this is what I was trying to show with this painting. If there are still magic beings, unicorns and green men in forests, they surely have to be among the bluebells. Painted on deep edge canvas, white edges, no frame needed.
My kids are so fond of chocolate lava cake which inspired me to try it into another creative piece of work. This painting is an abstract of the molten flowing chocolate lava in shades of brown with white used for negative spaces which my kids would love to call vanilla ice cream. Sides painted, signed on the back, varnished to protect from sunlight, ready to hang.P&P not included.
