Something Changes- a sussex autumn landscape with deer
30 x 30 x 1.5 inches semi abstract landscape painting of two deer in an an autumn wood. The background of this autumn inspired landscape was painted in a loose, abstract style with a few trees and leaves hinted at and the idea of golden light coming through trees. Some of the beams of light shine onto a clearing where a red deer stag and a doe have just appeared. I wanted to try and recreate the ethereal nature of deer as well as the experience of a walk in an autumn forest. It is something many people love to do as there is an atmosphere under trees that is both reassuring and a little melancholy in the autumn. Around the deer I used some bright gold yellow which adds to the magical element of the painting. The colours are warm and autumnal and are reflecting what I see around me right now in the Ashdown Forest area of Sussex (October 2018). Painted on deep edge canvas - edges white, no frame needed.
Breaking dawn at Billingsgate Market
Breaking dawn at Billingsgate market 100x71x3cm. Dawn, suddenly awakened with smell of the sea, the taste of salt. Fish, lobsters and crabs of all varieties, unseen wonders of the ocean in multi- coloured incandescent forms overspill crates and surfaces. The floor is wet, the structure looms and echos the sounds movement and chatter. People meander, glances, smiles as traders tell of the wonders of the catches. Oils on box canvas, painted around sides, ready to hang. Free UK delivery by recognised courier. £750
Summer Ends - colourful semi-abstract landscape with swallow
30 x 30 x 1.5 inches semi abstract landscape painting in summer rainbow colours with a swallow. I painted this on a hot day in September after a walk in the fields near where I live. It felt like end of summer as the next day the weather changed. I used very warm bright colours including bright orange, yellow, pink and green and I made the background blurred and shimmery to give the idea of flowers in the heat. The swallow is a regular in England in summer and I love to watch them scudding over the fields and hills of Sussex. However they will soon be leaving and although it feels a little sad, as heralds the end of summer, it is also optimistic as it looks forward to the beginning of autumn which sees equally beautiful landscapes. The painting style is semi-abstract, expressionist with art nouveau type shapes standing in relief in some parts especially round the bird. It is partly realistic and partly exuberantly decorative. Painted on deep edge canvas - edges white, no frame needed.
Thames barge at Chelsea wharf
A Thames barge is moored alongside a wharf at Chelsea in London, I took the photograph that I used for the painting in 1988, by then both the barge and the wharf had been outmoded for a long time, their purpose of use altered from being worked by occupation and commerce to becoming abodes to be lived in. Change didn't destroy them but it did destroy the ways of life they supported.
Flight of the Butterfly
Summer Time-warp - a green landscape painting
30 x 30 x 1.5 inches semi abstract green painting of a lake, trees, pink wildflowers and a red bird. This painting gives an impression of a lake glittering through trees in summer with willowy pink and red flowers in front of us in the foreground. It shimmers and blurs and is is abstract but also very obvious in what it depicts. A red cardinal bird flies across the scene making a perfect contrast to the green of the landscape. It was inspired by a walk I had around Bewl lake in Kent. It is an impression of a perfect summer day. It is green and luscious and full of possibilities that are impressionistic and expressionistic and a little art nouveau. Painted on deep edge canvas - edges white, no frame needed.
