LARGE ORIGINAL Oil Painting - Woodland Born - winter abstract with dee

Title: LARGE ORIGINAL Oil Painting - Woodland Born - winter abstract with dee
Description: 40 x 40 x 1.5 inches large original oil painting of a white winter woodland landscape with a stag and a doe. This painting is semi abstract in style and was built up with lots of thick layers of paint. The first layer was in autumn colours and the second and third layer were more muted whites and pale pastel colours that give the impression of a winter landscape with snow and frost and ice. Two deer stand to the left looking half formed. Their faces are fairly realistic but their bodies and legs are abstract and and are emerging or melting into the landscape itself. There are trees behind the deer and a cold winter sky behind the treeline. On the branches next to the deer are pastel coloured leaves here and there that mimic the colours of leaves with frost on them or even of early spring cherry tree blossom. I confess this is is a painting I have wrestled with and over-painted parts of it a few times. I am finally very happy with it though because it stands somewhere between abstract winter landscape and a traditional winter landscape as do the deer. Deer are quite mysterious with their ability to appear and disappear at will, especially in forests, and I feel I have captured that transitory thing they do quite well. Sometimes I glance at the painting I and wonder if the deer have moved a little each time I do... Painted on deep edge canvas, white edges, frame not necessary.

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.
