LARGE ORIGINAL Oil Painting - Mythology - a unicorn in her woodland re

Title: LARGE ORIGINAL Oil Painting - Mythology - a unicorn in her woodland re
Description: A 36 x 48 x 1.5 inches large semi abstract original oil painting of a vibrant autumn forest with unicorn. This painting was made with lots of warm luminous colours and is slightly art nouveau in style. The paint was blurred together to give it a slightly 3D effect. Among the trees a white horse can just about be seen with her tail intertwined in the flora and fauna of the forest. It is inspired by my own desire to find magical things. I find forests fascinating but also scary - just like most fairy tales. There is an atmosphere in trees that changes from woodland to woodland - quite strange. This woodland was inspired by Friston Forest in Sussex where mythical beats may well be glimpsed from time to time... Painted on deep edge canvas, edges white, frame not needed.

Artist Biography:

I am a Sussex based artist who paints large original landscape paintings and seascape paintings in oil on canvas.

My art is painted mostly from memory after having visited somewhere beautiful and are an attempt to capture some of the essence of that place.


I gained a fine art degree from Brighton in 1983 and began my painting career as a portraitist and muralist. However, sometime in the late 90’s, after painting my 200th labrador, I realised I was crushingly bored and needed to develop my own painting style and began to paint landscapes and seascapes for my own amusement.



I am inspired by the patterns and movements of nature and animals and eventually developed a painting style that combines traditional painting techniques with more abstract and contemporary techniques.



My artworks evolve from simple ideas, usually after I have taken a walk somewhere. They are expressionistic, impressionist, art deco, art nouveau and something possibly unique to me in the feeling they evoke.



I like to think that paintings have ‘little souls’ woven into them by artist’s and that these are what call to a viewer (or not as the case may be) and give a painting presence and desirability.



My goal is to one day paint a place so beautiful I will disappear into it and never be seen again and to create worlds where others can do the same – even if only for a little while.
