Twilight Grace - art nouveau forest sunset with white owl
Twilight Grace is a 40x40x1,5 inches large original oil painting of an art nouveau style landscape with a white owl. The landscape shows a winter forest scene with a white lake at the bottom and a white owl swooping down from the trees. She is the silent herald of twilight. I painted this in January when purple, yellow, orange and pink are often seen in the evenings as the sun is setting through the naked trees. I was trying to capture the exact moment when the last beam of sun falls through a forest which acts as a signal for owls to start hunting. I painted the barn owl very carefully as I wanted her to look pristine against the slightly odd background of winter trees and white veils that I used to try and show the transition between the day and the night. Painting on deep edge canvas with white edges, ready to hang on wall, no frame necessary.
The Azure Window.
An abstract painting inspired by a coastal rock archway formation on the island of Gozo, Malta which was one of the islands main tourist attractions before it collapsed in a storm in 2017. It is painted in oils on canvas with the painting continuing around the sides so no framing is required but it can be framed if you so wish.
Moorings at dusk
A large square contemporary gloss varnished acrylic painting depicting The Monument, London. I painted an animated fiery background to give the impression of flames reaching up to the sky as may have been seen during the Great Fire of London, to which the Monument was built in commemoration. It measures 910 x 910 x 38 mm (36 x 36 x 1.5 inches) and is painted on a deep set high quality cotton box canvas (380g/m2). The sides are painted so it doesn\\\'t necessarily need a frame.
THE FAIRGROUND #2
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. Colours will vary slightly from screen resolution. Room example only not too scale. The 2 painting duo is just an example of a pair. Signed on the back. With certificate of authenticity.
Monarchs of Spring - a large oil painting of a green spring meadow wit
40x40x1.5 inches Monarchs of Spring is a large original oil painting on deep edge canvas with white edges. The monarchs are two red deer, a stag and a doe, who stand in the middle of a spring meadow full of white lacy flowers. Behind them is a tantalizing view of a field seen through the trees of yellow rapeseed flowers and glimpses of this yellow can be seen in a horizontal line all through the painting behind the deer. This was done for the very good reason that I like yellow and love seeing fields full of yellow flowers in Spring and summer. This painting was originally simply a landscape that I painted in May 2018 having been on a walk near Wadhurst in East Sussex through the deer park of a stately home there. I had wanted to reflect the abundance of the wildflowers and trees in meadows all over England during my favourite month. However when I looked at the painting later I realized I needed to add two of the deer. The painting is semi abstract, slightly art nouveau in style and is painted in muted tones of greens, lilacs, yellows and white.
