When Shaun creates a piece of work the process is mainly based on his experimenting with colour and textures combined with his emotions and environment at that time. On completion his aim is for you the viewer to see their own interpretation when looking at the artwork. His paintings are not primarily intended to create definitive images although that is what you the viewer may perceive. However, if asked from his perspective, Shaun would say using multi-layers of paint, textures and colours are more important. Colours will vary slightly from screen resolution. Room example only not too scale. Signed on the back. With certificate of authenticity.
Night Magicians is a large oil painting on canvas of three white barn owls flying across a lilac and orange twilight sky. It is contemporary art nouveau in style which you can see from the stylised shapes of the twigs and branches of the delicate white tree tops. Each of the owls (associated with the Goddess Athena by the way) is looking a different direction as if they are about to go their separate ways. Owls donât really flock together so maybe they are. Owls are elegant beautiful birds and are all the more mysterious from being so quiet and hard to spot during the day time. This idea alone was enough for me to want to paint this. It is 40x40x1.5 inches, white edges, wide edge canvas, ready to hang, no frame needed.
Gelli Aur (Golden Grove), Rhydowen
The Old Mill, Colton.
A picturesque view of the old mill at Colton near Leeds when it was a crumbling neglected ruin before it was refurbished. This small painting is the first version of the larger painting that is on show in my gallery which I feel turned out rather well considering the speed at which it was painted. It is painted on a stretched canvas with the painting continuing around the sides so no framing is required but it could be framed if you so wish.
MY GALLERY IS NOW CLOSED UNTIL 21st MAY 2021. A popular view of Scarborough showing the lighthouse and beach with some people enjoying the sun and some donkeys waiting to take children for rides. It is painted in oils on a 12 x 9 x 1/2 inch canvas and has a coat of varnish. It can hung as it is or you can frame it if you wish.

A STEP IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION
This Original Watercolour includes Poem Printed on coloured card to compliment the Artwork & Certificate of Authenticity. A STEP IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION Stone steps, ancient artifacts, within these walls, historical facts; creative craftsmen, made their own tools, man came a long way with the world he rules; but have things gone too far â is the world like an old banger car? Has the economy gone to our heads with no thought for the millions now dead? Historical disasters wiped out many lives, Historyâs repeating, but are we heading itâs teaching? Covid 19 is worse now than in May & I fear many are complacent, ignoring rules every day â All the grieving loved ones should have their say! If I was Prime Minister Iâd have Police on all streets, sending people home; except deliveries of our eats; with no human hosts to live in the virus would die, Iâd rather that, than you or I! We must care for Mother Earth And change our ways, care for each other, stop selfish ways or soon weâll all reach our end of days! Think of our NHS, how will they cope, even if you get it mild, think of vulnerable folk â self-isolate, donât spread it around; or on Earth, very soon, thereâll be no life to be found!
