Autumn Radiates is an autumn inspired oil painting of a stag and three deer under luminous orange, magenta and gold trees - 30x30x1.5inches. It was painted after a walk I took in the Burwash area of East Sussex (Rudyard Kipling territory). I had been walking down a steep hill with rows of trees and hedgerow marking the edge of the fields. Under one stand of trees were a group of deer who I seem to see often and have painted often (one buck, three hinds, not the same group but feels like it!). The painting style is contemporary, wet into wet, impasto style which appears to radiate with the energy of autumn (hence the title). It pays homage to the beautiful landscape paintings of Gustav Klimt who I admire for his ability to take something as apparently dull as the corner of a field and part of a tree and make it absolutely fascinating. This painting reflects my favourite warm autumn colours and with my favourite animals and in one of my favourite walking areas. To visit, park in Burwash and walk behind the houses in any direction and say hello to my deer for me) Painted on deep edge canvas. White, ready to hang.
The Persistent Piano
Leopard On The Rocks
This was my first lockdown painting which was created in a very confined space, but was well worth the effort in recreating the calculating look from this elegant and powerful animal. Interpreted from a wonderful photo, this exposes her beautiful, detailed markings as she chills on the rocks in the shade from the sun. Painted in oils on boxed canvas so no need to frame.
This is an evocative narrative of a young lady taking time to relax while reading a favourite book under the watch of the iconic Mont St Michel on the Normandy/Brittany border in the company of her beloved and iconic Citroen 2CV. The work is painted on a prepared board in a custom made frame set in turn in a contemporary white tray frame.
