This is an oil painting on canvas of some beautiful red, yellow and white flowers that were given to me as a present for Mother's Day. I couldn't resist painting them and I hope you like them as much as I do. It is painted on all sides so can be hung without a frame if desired or you can frame it to your liking. It also has a coat of varnish.
Revelation - a path through an autumn wood
40 x 40 x 1.5 inches large original oil painting of a path through an autumn wood. Three female deer and one stag watch from the right as the light beckons though the trees. It promises a discovery of some kind. The style is slightly art nouveau, semi abstract and is painted to give a blurred out of focus effect. This path through a forest is a persistent theme for me as I walk often in woodland like this. And when I do, I am forever feeling like I will discover something magical just around the next bend. The trees whisper it, the sunlight hints at it, the deer lead to it. Maybe one day I will find it (whatever it is!)
This is an extremely unusual representation of a seated nude female figure deep in thought apparently formed as a mosaic of coloured tiles but is in fact painted on a stretched canvas. It is based on another traditional painting of the same figure shown elsewhere in my gallery. It is ready to hang and set in a contemporary brushed cream tray frame, although this can be changed to suit. It is meticulously painted with great attention paid to each individual tile. This is certain to be a striking eye catching talking point in any display. The frame measures 68cm x 48 cm overall x 35 mm deep. This piece is currently on display in an exhibition in the small town of Valréas, in Provence, France, but it can be reserved and brought back to the UK please contact the artist for further information.
Colours of Exmoor
This one is from my Exmoor series, this time on stretched canvas. I am always fascinated by the colours, textures and light of this place, by it's rough beauty. This painting reflects what I sense when I come to Exmoor, the hills, amazing views, the contrast of colours and the feeling of space. This is actually one of my favorite paintings. This painting is framed in a "floating" frame and is ready to hang.
oil on canvas board 30x30cm. The focus is on trying to capture a sense of open space, the ache felt when witnessing the sublime, a place perhaps to get lost in but never afraid. Home in fact. A minimal composition and monochromatic palette, the emphasis is usually tone. Evoking an atmosphere, a place visited or not but somehow known. Here a point of light peeking out from behind the cloud, the earth beneath shrouded in shadows and mist. Thank you for looking. oliver
Saskia has produced a highly textured feast for the eyes in thickly painted oils. This was a relatively new technique that Saskia began experimenting with in 2016. Being completely seduced by this style, Saskia is currently only using this technique and doesn't wish to use paintbrushes for some time to come.
