Olly The Octopus
I have used melted wax to create this little picture... Olly The Octopus is a little different to my usual paintings.it could not be repeated no matter how many times you tried.. There is another painting in the series called Sid The Squid which is also available here on ABA ..if you would like to purchase both paintings I will sell the two together for Ã¯Â¿Â½55 It comes in a black mount ready to frame for your room.. and measures 20cm x 15cm mounted. Encaustic wax is a unique way of creating completely different paintings-- it is not 100% controllable -which makes it very interesting to work with.. I use an electric iron to melt the wax and 'paint' the picture using the iron. and love the unpredictable nature of it.
Nature Unleashed is a very large oil painting on canvas of an exuberant Sussex wildflower meadow featuring the South Downs, swallows and poppies. It is 72x48x1.5 inches. The style is semi-abstract and art nouveau and is very vibrant and colourful. It was inspired by walks taken in fields and woodlands around the South Downs in summer when the wildflowers are at their best and the poppies, in particular, stand out against the green grass and reeds. The scene shows an abundance of flowers in the foreground and trees and fields leading off into the distance behind them. Two barn swallows swoop over the flowers and you can see the patterns their motion makes. Swallows are birds you see often in Sussex and they are very much woven into the landscape of summer. The painting was made from memory using reference phots to add small details here and there. Memory painting tends to reflect how I felt about a place I have been to rather than Ã¢â¬ËrealisticÃ¢â¬â¢ details as such and I like this way of working. What I feel about an English Sussex summer is that it is beautiful and wild and I am happy I caught this feeling and in such a large canvas! The edges are dark green and it is ready to hang, no frame needed

Coffee Break ll
Warm chocolates and browns make up this modern and contemporary triptych painting. The graduated browns of the three panels set off the raised textured sections which have been built up in multi-coloured layers to create embossed swirls of colour and depth. You can see coffee and mocha ripples in the rich chocolatey colours. This is an attractive and fresh painting that would compliment most colour schemes. This painting is completely flexible and can be hung portrait or landscape style any side up to suit your living space. In addition the three individual panels can be hung in any order. Each panel has been signed on the side to allow this versatility. This painting has been finished with a protective gloss varnish.
