Gentle Souls is 40x40x1.4 inches large contemporary, semi abstract, art nouveau painting with two spotted fallow deer in a woodland clearing in winter. Both deer stand on a different plane and around them are abstract trees that hint of pine trees and frosty tree branches. There is a suggestion of a hazy sun above tree line and hills in the top right. The two female deer have appeared in a strange space that hints of the heart of a forest but is overlapping in possibilities with transparent layers. The colours range from white and cream through to pale yellow, blues, violets, orange and pinks. The inspiration for the painting came having seen the herd of deer at Knole Park in Kent. I was struck by how elegant and perfect these little deer are, and simply wanted to express this. I chose a semi abstract background as it allows me freedom that contrasts with the traditional handling of the deer. Above to the right is a suggestion of a moon. I like the mystery of this painting and I am happy I have caught some of the essence of the deer who remain a constant source of fascination for me. I often see them when walking and are always amazed at how such relatively large creatures can appear and disappear with such apparent ease. It is quite magical. The painting is on deep edge canvas, white edges, no frame needed, ready to hang
The Back Road
A view up the back road. One of the few in the city that has not succumbed to being covered in tarmac as yet. It is painted in oils in a loose impressionistic manner on a box canvas measuring 8 x 8 x 1.5 inches with the painting continuing around the sides so no framing is required but it can be framed if you so desire.
Something a little different to my norm.. I really enjoyed creating this small series of abstract paintings.. I have used oil paints on a black background, and merged all of the colours together as I have painted.. This canvas measures 80cm x 60cm but you could turn it the other way up if you chose! Its been strung and varnished and is ready to hang.
Sagrada Familia Barcelona
A view of Gaudi's Sagrada Familia still under construction in Barcelona with the black and yellow taxis that can be seen everywhere around the city. The two seem to go together making the location instantly identifiable. It is painted in oils on a canvas panel and is ready for you to frame to your tastes.
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.
Robin Hoods Bay
A view of a pathway running between the houses. It is getting towards evening and the sun is starting to sink in the sky. It is painted in oils on a canvas panel and comes complete in a wooden frame with a gold finish as illustrated in the photograph. The painting size is 10 x 8 inches with a 1 inch wide frame.
Girl With Pearl Earstud 2
This is a portrait painted in the classic style. It was pre-selected for the RP exhibition at the Mall Galleries but did not make the final cut. It sold on the preview evening of a prestigious Yorkshire exhibition - unfortunately underpriced it was also wanted by two other prospective buyers and I am now in the process of painting another version for one of these people. The painting is set in a contemporary dark mahogany effect tray frame measuring 69cm x 48 cm overall x 35 mm deep. I am happy to accept commissions for similar works - please contact me for details.
