Title: Numinous
Description: Numinous is a panoramic 16x40x1.5 inches oil painting landscape of a glowing autumn path with vibrantly coloured trees. Numinous means ‘spiritual in quality’ and autumn paths do have that feeling when the sun shines through the leaves and make a woodland come alive with colour. This particular path was inspired by a little village in Sussex called Fairwarp which has lots of little pockets of ancient woodland in and around it. I both love woodland and fear it as I get lost in it quite easily but it always intrigues me how different the atmospheres are in different forests and glades. This woodland is a spiritual one and feels like it leads to revelations of the best kind. I include in the photos of the painting the original drawing that I made for it. It is idiotically simple but I was pleased with the resultant painting. Painted on deep edge canvas, dark purple edges, ready to hang, does not need framing.

Gill Bustamante

Artist Biography:

Gill Bustamante is a professional artist based in East Sussex who creates large semi-abstract landscape, seascape and wildlife paintings in oil on canvas. Her painting style is very distinct and often fuses art-nouveau, impressionist and semi-abstract techniques with traditional portraiture that reflect her love of nature, animals, birds and the flora and fauna of the landscapes around her. She loves the ancient landscapes of England and her paintings often reflect the magical elements that such landscapes have. Gill’s main working method has been the development of a painting style she terms ‘memory impressionism’. This method involves going walking somewhere, looking at and absorbing the things she sees and experiences, and then returning home to her studio to try and capture an echo or essence of the place from memory - including any wildlife she may have seen. By this method, she captures precise moments in times at different seasons and the feeling she has about them. Gill completed a fine art degree in Brighton in 1983 and has painted since she was three. In her own words: “Painting always makes me happy along with cake, bunnies, driving erratically, BBC 6 music and totally irreverent comedy”.
