Summer Ends - colourful semi-abstract landscape with swallow

Title: Summer Ends - colourful semi-abstract landscape with swallow
Description: 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.

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.
