Ghostly Buildings of Pwllfain Farm
The Mill Pond and Malt Shovel
This is one of my many paintings of the Mill Pond in Burley in Wharfedale. The painting also includes the rear of the Malt Shovel. The ivy on the rear of the building was removed when it was turned into apartments and the bridge in between it and the pond has a small opening at it's base (middle of the bridge)to allow water in from the local beck to replace the water flowing out of the pond that drove the old mill that has now been turned into a house.
Sunset over San Francisco Bay
Acrylic on 12 x 16 inch stretched canvas box frame (335g/m2). Painted sides so can be hung without needing framing. Painted from the top of a hill overlooking San Francisco Bay at the end of a warm October day during the most incredible sunset. A street lamp and parked car in the foreground draw the eye into the picture. Signed by the artist: D Shawcross. Painting finished with a protective silk spray to prolong the quality of the paint on the canvas.
I LOVE this painting! The photos really don't do it justice..there are so many colours going on in it..it really is one of my favourite ones ever! The method I have used means that the acrylic paint becomes very unpredictable and there is no knowing how it will end up... I used pure silicon, pure alcohol and a blow torch to create it!! Every time you look at it you will see something new..so many 'cells' containing colours--the metallic ones catch the light beautifully. At the moment it is hanging in a nearby exhibition, but I can take it out if it sells from here.. I have chosen to hang it the way up you see it but you may decide to hang it another way..it is entirely up to you.. It measures 24in x 24in and comes ready to hang in your home or office, It is much more vibrant than it appears on here..the colours really pop out from the canvas,,
Serenity In Grey
Serenity in Grey is based on happy memories spent as a child walking along a snowy path with my Dad in winter...there is nothing like being the first to step onto fresh snowfall. There is lots of lovely texture in the painting... I have used high quality oils on a 16in x 20in box canvas-this can be framed if you wish. I have left the sides white/unpainted. The painting come strung and ready to hang.. P+P is included on Mainand UK
50 Shades Of Grey ll
An atmospheric painting based on the Welsh coastline. It looks like a storm may be brewing and the clouds are racing across the sky and the bushes and foliage are starting to move in the breeze.. I have used high quality acrylic paint on a chunky 20in x 16in canvas. The painting has been varnished and is ready to hang.
