40 x 40 x 1.5 inches original oil painting of a fish in a tropical sea. A beautiful The fish swims through the ocean intent on his destination. Above him you can see the shimmering blue water of the surface of the sea forom below with all its sparkling patterns of light. Below him are the ever changing fleeting ripples of light that sparkle across the the sandy sea bed. The sand has shades of pink, yellow, lilac and turquoise. This is a serene and restful painting that takes you on holiday whenever you wish to go. It is painting on wide edge canvas, edges blue, frame unnecessary.
The Hunter's Shimmering Forest - A Large Colourful Semi Abstract Lands
A 36 x 36 x 1.5 inches large original oil on canvas. The painting is a very colourful, semi abstract landscape and has a white barn owl hovering in the gap between the trees above the woodland path. Her attention is on something we cannot see. The painting style is abstract expressionist, art deco and a little art nouveau and was created using thick oil paint that is slightly glossy. The canvas is deep edged and white with a hint of blue. A frame is not necessary. I painted the bright colours using varying brush sizes, wet into wet method, using lots of linseed oil and the tree and light shapes began to form as I did this. The owl went in last as I wanted her there to look after the final scene.

The Raven's Wood
30 x 30 x 1.5 Original oil of an English woodland path. The colours are summer to autumn and there is raven circling above the trees watching as you walk her path. The painting was made after a walk in the Ashdown Forest where ravens and crows seemed to report my progress for the entirety of my journey. I never underestimate birds - they know far more than we assume and I would not be surprised if the Green Man himself is their boss. The painting is quite 3D in aspect and the colours shimmer and change throughout the day as the sunlight moves round the room. The style is impressionist, semi abstract. The edges are white with a hint of lilac and no frame is needed.

This painting has been finished with a protective silk varnish. This painting is on a standard edge box canvas. This painting is currently in an exhibition at Obsidian Art Gallery in Stoke Mandeville. Please contact me first if you wish to purchase it.

Eye-catching Lake view study in warming pastel tones. This was inspired by a long weekend beside Lake Windermere in the Lake District.
