Nose bag at ea
Modern contemporary painting inspired by English spring gardens. The flowers are raised from the fresh yellow background using textured layers which lets the light catch them, creating a new aspect each time you look at the painting. The fresh colours will complement most colour schemes and the painting continues round the edges of this standard edge canvas so it is ready to hang with no need for framing. This creates a very simple but effective style. This painting has been finished with a protective satin varnish.
Low Tide St. Ives Cornwall
Forest Elemental is a 36 x 48 x 1.5 inches oil on canvas of a large deer stag materialising in an autumn forest. The style is semi abstract contemporary and is highly colourful. I have used a golden yellow glaze of paint to make it glow. This painting was started after I took a walk around the Kent High Weald area near Ide Hill (postcode TN14 6JW). I did see deer and I did go through some beautifully vibrant patches of woodland that were turning gold and red as part of the autumn display. There was a smell of oak leaves (the best autumn smell!) and lots of dappled golden light. It was quite magical and that is probably why I painted the stag as a magical being rather that a mundane one. The term Elemental means a spirit or guardian that looks after certain places. I like to think this big stag was looking after the ancient trees I was walking past. One of the reasons I paint woodland scenes is that it fascinates me how the atmospheres vary from woodland to woodland. Some are calming and pleasant and some can be downright scary. It is not hard for me, therefore, to imagine some of them have spirit guardians. Painted on deep edge canvas, white edges, no frame needed
Poppy Field - Large
One of my "large" range of canvases. If you'd like to commission a smaller version of this painting please get in touch. A contemporary painting of a field of fresh, bright poppies. The background is textured with swirls of cream and coffee to set off the bright red petals of the poppies creating a modern style. This is a simple and clean picture that would suit any living space. This painting has been finished with a protective satin varnish.
