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!)
Everyday Magic - a semi abstract forest landscape with birds
40 x 40 x 1.5 inches large original oil painting of a semi abstract forest with two bullfinches. The style is slightly art nouveau (organic forms in a pattern) and the colours range from purple, amethyst, magenta, orange and rose red through to Indian yellow and gold. The background trees and light through the forest is deliberately blurred to make it look out of focus whilst in the foreground two red bullfinches are in sharp focus as a contrast to the background. I often walk in Sussex woodland and often see these birds. I find the little flashes of colour and beautiful song quite magical. I wonder what magic they are creating when there are no humans around to notice it. This is another in a series of paintings I have been working on that are portals to another place. I like that it can be on a wall and provide an exit when you need to get away for while. It is on deep edge canvas, white edges, frame not necessary.
Nebulous Forest - a semi abstract landscape
40 x 40 x 1.5 inches large original oil painting of a semi abstract forest. Two pheasants fly into the forest and mimic the colours that can be seen in the forest. The rainbow colours are very vibrant and and have been blended and blurred to give an out of focus affect. It is the sort of place that may be of this world but could also be on another planet entirely. It is only the pheasants (who are nice but dim) who keep it in England. It was painted after a walk I had in the woods near a village called Warbleton in East Sussex. A lovely area where it is easy to forget what year or even what century we are in. I think this is why the painting is quite ethereal. It is on deep edge canvas, white edges, frame not necessary.
Ocean Calling - blue sea seascape
A 36 x 48 x 1.5 inches large original seascape painting of a lady on a beach by a blue sea. The tiny figure stands at the edge of the white foam as the waves are pulling back. She is being drawn into the sea and the painting does have a real pull to it which makes it a little scary but also quite inviting. The water is turquoise, aqua and blue and the sand is pale. It is painted in thick paint in an expressionist semi abstract style. It reflects the feeling of fear mixed with fascination that the sea has and was inspired after a stay I had in Florida in January 2017. Most people love the sea and this it is because of the space plus energy that it gives to you when to look at it, smell the salt and listen to the rhythm of it. Painted on deep edge canvas, edges white, ready to hang, no frame needed.
A Summer Place
A large 36 x 48 x 1.5 inches semi abstract original oil painting of a summer landscape. I called it 'a summer place' after a song I used to love as a little kid - I can hear this song when I look at the painting. The landscape shows three swallows swooping over the scene with red reeds or poppies, a lake, some pine trees and the sea. It is art nouveau and decorative but also quite painterly and abstract. I painted it after a visit to the Cuckmere river in Sussex and tried to capture the gorgeous ecstatic enthusiasm of the wildlife and birds there as they follow the river to the sea. I was quite happy to be there myself :-)
LARGE ORIGINAL Oil Painting - Fabian Waits - semi abstract landscape i
40 x 40 x 1.5 inches original oil painting of a large semi abstract landscape. A red deer stag stands watching us from the forest where beams of light filter through the trees and light up the gaps between the trees. He is dark but slightly luminous. The style is lyrical and slightly art nouveau. It is painted in autumn colours and hints of a lake and mist through trees. The stag is ready to take us somewhere beautiful. It was inspired by the fabian nature of deer who are the true unicorns of our English woodland. Painted on deep edge canvas - edges white, no frame needed.
The Quest - semi abstract landscape art nouveau landscape
36 x 48 x 1.5 inches original oil painting. This is a very vibrant, semi abstract rainbow coloured forest landscape in a slightly art nouveau style. It an impressionist image of light through trees. It was inspired by a walk I had in Friston Forest (East Sussex) in the summer. There are tall pines and lots of other ancient trees in this forest which is rather spooky and yet really beautiful to walk through. I would often glimpse birds and wildlife through the trees and lived in the constant fantasy that I would spot a unicorn or dryad. I never did but it became a quest (hence the title). Of course painting can do what real life cannot so in this painting a unicorn is beginning materialise ... Oil on deep edge canvas, edges white, ready to hand, no frame needed.
Going Elsewhere - a winter landscape with crows
A large 36 x 48 x 1.5 inches semi abstract original oil painting of a winter landscape. Two crows fly high above the winter trees and the rookery below them. Through the trees can be seen frosty fields, a river, hills and maybe the sea or a lake beyond. The trees have the suggestion of magnolia or other pink blossom on them. The crows are not quite of this world and the entire landscape shimmers and seems to dissolve slightly as you look at it. It was painted after walking along the South Downs near Kingston. Crows are constant companions when you walk in England. Almost as if they are keeping an eye on you. I am fond of them but also find them quite mysterious. It would not surprise me if they can flip from one dimension to another - hence the title of the painting. Deep edge canvas, edges white, frame not needed.
A Beautiful Truth - an abstract Winter landscape with swallows
A large 48 x 36 x 1.5 inches original oil painting on canvas of a winter landscape. It is semi-abstract in style and painted in hues of violet, pink, orange and yellow. Two swallows fly over a a shimmering, misty lake. The refection of the rising sun can be seen through the trees and in the water. It was inspired by a walk I took in December near Ardingly in Sussex. I was trying to show that, although not as colourful as the other seasons, winter can be very beautiful and that nature and the seasons go relentlessly though their cycles regardless of what humans are doing and that a good way to stay sane is simply to walk and observe this. Nature is endlessly fascinating.
A New Perspective - sunset seascape painting
A 40 x 40 x 1.5 inches large original oil painting of a sunset over the sea. A woman sits on a rock in the foreground and watches the waves moving in. Below her, white lacy patterns are formed by the water as it swirls over and around the rocks near the shore. The sun is low in the sky and its colours are reflected in the glittering sea. The woman is brave. She is remembering something she needs to remember and is making decisions that will change the future. This painting draws on the observations made during many hours spent on Brighton beach as an art student bunking off from work as the sea was much more interesting. Edges are white with a hint of yellow. No frame needed
