Echo of an English Summer
Echo of an English Summer is a large oil painting of a Sussex late summer meadow with deer and wild flowers, art nouveau style. The area that inspired it is the Burwash area where there are lots of fields and streams and gentle slopes that represent best of English countryside for me. This was painted after a walk I did through abundant wildflowers at the end of August when thistles and mauve flowers were all ganging up on me as I walked thought them. I saw a few small deer herds and you can just see two of the deer on the left of the painting watching as deer do. I always feel sad at the end of summer as nature winds down for the autumn and winter. It is like a theatre after the cast has left. It is a beautiful melancholy and I paint one every year that represents this feeling. Dedicated to all the farmers and environmentalists who are helping to preserve our meadows and hedgerows and wildlife. It is 40x40x1.5 inches, white edges, frame not needed as is wide edge canvas

Elsewhere is a contemporary art nouveau oil painting with a deer stag in an autumn landscape. The painting shows an elegant deer stag standing in an autumn forest of rich reds, magenta, orange and gold with a little light blue and lilac for balance. In the background is the suggestion of forests and hills and in the foreground a lake and some trees. The lines are sinuous and whimsical hence the art nouveau description and the colours are autumnal and warm. Though a decorative painting, there is also a mystery to the scene and the stag has his story. I was thinking of Scotland when as I painted it. It is 36x48x1.5 inches on white deep edge canvas, ready to hang and no frame is needed.
Coming Home is a large square seascape painting of the sea, Seven Sistersâ chalk cliffs and the lighthouse at Eastbourne in East Sussex. It is 40x40x1.5 inches on white deep edge canvas. The sea is very blue and you can see the land fading off into a purple haze in the distance towards Seaford. A single seagull is returning home. This painting was inspired by the many times I have walked along these cliffs from Eastbourne over to Birling Gap. The sea is turquoise near the cliffs where it is affected by the colour of the rocks underneath it and is deeper blue as you go further out. Paint has been used liberally especially on the cliffs to give an idea of the texture. Dripples of white from the base of the cliffs hint at the motion of the sea and the erosion that is occurring because of it. This landscape is a great place to see for miles around over a beautiful sea and one I visited regularly to keep me happy during the covid lockdowns. No frame needed, ready to hang. Dedicated everyone loves to walk and who is active in preserving nature.
Forest Monarchs is large contemporary oil painting of a deer stag and a doe against an abstract autumn forest background. It is painted in thick luxurious paint in warm autumn colours. The deer stand in the centre of the canvas with light behind them and trees in the foreground which they are merging with Ã¢â¬â as deer seem to do in real life. They are fallow deer which you see often in English countryside. This painting was inspired by the deer at Knole Park in Sevenoaks when I was there last October. There is a long shallow valley which runs down the middle of the park which has families of deer in the trees either side that bellow and parade around at that time of year. No matter how many deer I see, I am still captivated by them and have tried to show the magical nature of them. The painting style is messy art nouveau and because it is painted in thick paint, has facets to it that reflect slightly different colours at different times of day. The size is 40x40x1.5 inches, white edged, deep edge canvas, ready to hang and no frame needed.
