Burning Bright - a tiger in a glowing forest
40 x 40 x 1.5 inches original oil painting of a tiger in a forest. It is painted in a semi-abstract, art nouveau style and shows a warm forest landscape with light coming through the trees. A tiger sits on a tree and dominates the landscape as tigers do. She is painted partly traditionally and partly in a painterly style which makes an interesting contrast. I am well aware of the danger tigers are in and so decided to paint a place where at least one can exist safely. Edges are white, no frame is needed. Meet the owner of SussexPai

Watchers in the Ice Forest - a winter landscape with deer
A large 36 x 48 x 1.5 inches semi abstract original oil painting of a winter landscape with deer. A row of deer - doe's and stag's - line up on the bank of a river watching us. Behind them is an icy forest and a lake seen through the trees. The colours are muted and hint at a dawn sunrise in winter with mist and ice on the trees. The style is semi abstract art nouveau. Deer are a common muse for me as they have a mystery to them that makes me feel they can take me somewhere I want to go. They appear often when I walk in the woods and fields of Sussex and disappear just as fast. If I ever manage to follow one who knows where I will end up?...
LARGE ORIGINAL Oil Painting - Fabian Waits - semi abstract landscape i
40 x 40 x 1.5 inches original oil painting of a large semi abstract landscape. A red deer stag stands watching us from the forest where beams of light filter through the trees and light up the gaps between the trees. He is dark but slightly luminous. The style is lyrical and slightly art nouveau. It is painted in autumn colours and hints of a lake and mist through trees. The stag is ready to take us somewhere beautiful. It was inspired by the fabian nature of deer who are the true unicorns of our English woodland. Painted on deep edge canvas - edges white, no frame needed.
Life is magic - semi abstract landscape with birds
40 x 40 x 1.5 inches original oil painting of a semi abstract slightly mystical landscape. The painting hints at a lake and trees with autumn colours. Two red and back woodpeckers dissolve out of the scenery and the painting appears to shimmer with its different transparent layers. I was trying to catch that feeling you get you are walking and suddenly spot something but can't quite work out what it is until you get closer to it. One of the great joys of walking in the country is getting glimpses of wildlife in unexpected places. I love this and this painting, I hope, reflects it. Painted on deep edge canvas - edges white, no frame needed.
Angels under the sea - an underwater seascape with angel fish
A large 36 x 48 x 1.5 inches original oil painting three striped angel fish under a crystal clear blue ocean. The light shines through he ripples of the water and bounces off of the sandy sea bottom leaving white electrical type patterns on the seabed. The three fish swim along as if in a ballet in close formation and unaware of being beautiful. Note that there are hairs in the painting from the blending process which have been left in so you know it is an original! The edges are white. It is a Deep edge canvas so does not need a frame. Ready to hang.
Going Elsewhere - a winter landscape with crows
A large 36 x 48 x 1.5 inches semi abstract original oil painting of a winter landscape. Two crows fly high above the winter trees and the rookery below them. Through the trees can be seen frosty fields, a river, hills and maybe the sea or a lake beyond. The trees have the suggestion of magnolia or other pink blossom on them. The crows are not quite of this world and the entire landscape shimmers and seems to dissolve slightly as you look at it. It was painted after walking along the South Downs near Kingston. Crows are constant companions when you walk in England. Almost as if they are keeping an eye on you. I am fond of them but also find them quite mysterious. It would not surprise me if they can flip from one dimension to another - hence the title of the painting. Deep edge canvas, edges white, frame not needed.
The Quest - semi abstract landscape art nouveau landscape
36 x 48 x 1.5 inches original oil painting. This is a very vibrant, semi abstract rainbow coloured forest landscape in a slightly art nouveau style. It an impressionist image of light through trees. It was inspired by a walk I had in Friston Forest (East Sussex) in the summer. There are tall pines and lots of other ancient trees in this forest which is rather spooky and yet really beautiful to walk through. I would often glimpse birds and wildlife through the trees and lived in the constant fantasy that I would spot a unicorn or dryad. I never did but it became a quest (hence the title). Of course painting can do what real life cannot so in this painting a unicorn is beginning materialise ... Oil on deep edge canvas, edges white, ready to hand, no frame needed.
A Beautiful Truth - an abstract Winter landscape with swallows
A large 48 x 36 x 1.5 inches original oil painting on canvas of a winter landscape. It is semi-abstract in style and painted in hues of violet, pink, orange and yellow. Two swallows fly over a a shimmering, misty lake. The refection of the rising sun can be seen through the trees and in the water. It was inspired by a walk I took in December near Ardingly in Sussex. I was trying to show that, although not as colourful as the other seasons, winter can be very beautiful and that nature and the seasons go relentlessly though their cycles regardless of what humans are doing and that a good way to stay sane is simply to walk and observe this. Nature is endlessly fascinating.
Where Magic Lives...
A very large 48 x 48 x 1.5 inches original oil painting on canvas of a deer in a Scottish style landscape. A deer stag has appeared in a warm coloured forest with willowy birch and pine trees around him. He stands on a slope and off in the distance is the hint of a lake and hills and misty trees. I deliberately blended the background to blur it and the effect is is the same as you get if you are short sighted and take your glasses off. I like this effect as it you see more possibilities rather than less. I played around with contrasting a precise composition against complete random elements. The result is a shimmering place I hope I find one day. I suspect I need to go up past Edinburgh to find it... Edges white, no frame needed.
