RED BOATS HOME-- PORTH LEVERN
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
The Mists on Snaefell Mountain
Sarra on the summit of Snaefell Mountain. Locally the mists are known as the Cloak of Mannan which can envelope the whole of the mountain, sometimes even spilling out onto the island itself. It is said that when the mists clear, one can see 6 Kingdoms - Isle of Mann, England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland and the Kingdom of Heaven.

Wild And Free
This is the type of place I love walking in...Wild open moorland, It always feels like there is something mysterious about such places, especially on a dull and dark day. I was going to add more to this little painting, as you can see by the sketch above, but I liked it just as it was in the end...simple. Painted on a standard size canvas. 16"x 12". No frame is required as I have painted the edges as well.
African Sunset Scene
Vivid African Sunset depicted with umbrella thorn (acacia tortilis) trees and distant mountains. Warm oranges, yellows and fresh blues mingle to create a sky alive with colour. Texture in the foreground creates added interest. The painting continues round the edges of the frame making this ready for immediate hanging with no need for framing. This painting has been finished with a protective silk varnish. This painting is on a standard edge box canvas. This painting is currently in an exhibition at Obsidian Art Gallery in Stoke Mandeville. Please contact me first if you wish to purchase it.
A GREAT DAYS SAILING
"On the Beach"
A wild sea crashing on to a beach in a Cornish cove. This work captures the majestic power of the Atlantic Ocean as it meets the rugged south west shoreline. The work is framed in a contemporary brushed cream tray frame (white or gold are also available)measuring 68cm x 48 cm overall x 35 mm deep. It is strung ready to hang.
Eye-catching Lake view study in warming pastel tones. This was inspired by a long weekend beside Lake Windermere in the Lake District. The views across the lake shortly after dawn as the sun was rising were stunning. The painting continues round the edges of the painting so it comes ready for immediate hanging with no need for framing. It has been finished with a protective satin varnish.
St Govan's Chapel, Pembrokeshire
Watercolour and ink painting of St Govan's Chapel, St Govan's Head, Pembrokeshire. Built onto the side of the limestone cliff circa 13th Century although it may have been erected, in part, as early as the 6th Century. Amazing that it is still standing with the sea lapping at it's feet. Awarded a Certificate of Artistic Excellence by the SAA June2021
