Steam Train in the Sidings
An old Great Western Railway Train in the sidings at the end of a smokey London day. An impressionist-style watercolour painted in 3 colours: raw sienna, cadmium red and french ultramarine. Signed and dated by the artist. This painting comes already framed in a 70mm high quality mount (charcoal inner 5mm and cream outer 65mm). The frame is dark oak with an inner gold trim. The total size framed is 540 x 440mm.
Spring Calls is a 16x40x1.5 inches wide panoramic oil on canvas painting of a spring landscape with magpies. It is a semi abstract painting showing two magpies flying over a lake and the marshy wildflower meadows that surround it. The main colours are pink and green and it was inspired by a walk I took around Bewl Water lake in East Sussex last summer. There is a marshy part of the lake where pink flowers bloom and lots of green moss and reeds grow. This is my impression of that day. It has been painted as part of a series of four landscapes about the seasons.
Sunset Beach View
Relaxing sunset scene set at the beach where the watcher peeps through the sand dunes towards a pink sunset out to sea. Contemporary painting that will suit any home. This painting has been varnished with a protective matt varnish and the painting continues round the edge of the frame making this ready for hanging with no need for framing. This is a standard edge canvas.
Silence is Golden
An original acrylic watercolour of a naked lady kneeling painted from behind; silent and contemplating. Her long golden hair tumbling over her right shoulder. Signed by the artist: D Shawcross. Framed and ready to hang. Frame:25mm wide cushion shaped silver coloured picture frame moulding. Made from real pine wood with a distressed/leaf finish and acrylic safety glazing. Single ivory mount 55mm diameter.
The Houses of Pen Cei
Malt Shovel 2011
Somewhere Waiting is a large semi abstract square oil painting of a mythical landscape with deer (40x40x1.5 inches). The stag and three female deer, stand at the centre of the painting and there is a hint of a waterfall below them and trees and mountains above and around them. The deer are small and well defined though slightly nebulous at the same time. I often use this same little posse of deer in my paintings as they seem perfect together. Below the deer, if you look closely, you can see the outline of a much bigger stag who was painted over and has now become part of the waterfall. The painting began with a simple desire to use the colours in it which include magenta, rose, purple, lilac, pale blue, white and golden yellow. The painting worked well as an abstract landscape but I feel it is better with the little deer adding some focus to it. Most of my paintings have a story or memory attached. This one is about the spiritual nature of deer and the idea that maybe they can move between worlds and can act as guides. This idea is common to many cultures and I like it. This painting is on 3D, deep edge canvas, edges white, ready to hang, frame not needed.
