The Jewel of the River

Title: The Jewel of the River
Description: The Jewel of the River is a 40x40x1.5 inches oil painting of a kingfisher by a river surrounded by fields and wildflower meadows. The edges of the painting are blurred so that you are transported into it across the white lacy cow parsley flowers in the foreground. You then see trees and fields leading off into the distance and there is a hint of a river glittering between the stalks of the flowers. The painting has transparent veils of colours moving across it that that help to give it a shimmering magical feel. To the right sitting on one of the flowers is a tiny female kingfisher. She is the jewel of the river. The painting is semi abstract contemporary art nouveau in style and was inspired by an area of the river Medway near Tunbridge Wells where I saw my first kingfisher. I love to walk and I love to spot wildlife and I find birds completely captivating. Especially highly colourful ones. This landscape encapsulates for me a perfect memory of walking along a riverbank in Springtime. Dedicated to everyone who helps to preserve wildlife and the precious flora, fauna and landscapes of the world. Painted on deep edge canvas, white edges, ready to hang, no frame needed

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”.
