Angel Escapes to the Sea

Title: Angel Escapes to the Sea
Description: Angel Escapes to the Sea is another in a series of big vibrant blue underwater paintings of fish in a blue ocean. This particular fish is a golden angel fish and was painted using gold and pearlescent paints to make her sparkle. Angle fish like this would not really be found in the ocean but I liked the idea of her escaping and being free - hence the title. It is a painting about having lots of space and freedom and being happy in solitude. It seemed fitting to paint it during the Corvid 19 lock down so I can escape myself a bit - plus anyone else who wants to! The painting is mostly blue and turquoise and focuses on the sparkling waves at the top and the light patterns made on the sandy bottom of the sea by the light that bounces off them. It tries to capture that lovely holiday feeling you get in the sea on sunny days. Dedicated to anyone who would like a bit of freedom right now. It is 40x40x1.5 inches, white edges, ready to hang, no frame needed. Video:

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.
