A DAY OUT IN ST IVES
Through the Veil
Through the Veil is a large contemporary oil painting of a river bank in summer with wildflowers and white egrets. It is 40x40x1.5 inches. This painting was inspired by a recent river walk along the river Ouse near Newick. It shows the river and fields and trees beyond and wild flowers along the edge. Two white egrets are on the right and veils of transparent colours give the painting different facets like a diamond or stained-glass window. The painting tries to reflects the fast-changing countryside and flora and fauna you get in England in the summer along with all the scents, insect buzzing, bird singing and other lovely sensations that were present. The white egrets were there on the day though not posed quite as aesthetically. They are never the less ethereal and magical looking birds and always a joy to see. As always, I have tried to capture the emotion and feeling of the landscape rather than the botanical accuracies. It is painted on white wide edged canvas, no frame needed, ready to hang and comes with certificate of authenticity. Post code BN8 5BX if you want to visit and walk along the river.
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.
Polperro waiting for the tide
Forest Monarchs is large contemporary oil painting of a deer stag and a doe against an abstract autumn forest background. It is painted in thick luxurious paint in warm autumn colours. The deer stand in the centre of the canvas with light behind them and trees in the foreground which they are merging with Ã¢â¬â as deer seem to do in real life. They are fallow deer which you see often in English countryside. This painting was inspired by the deer at Knole Park in Sevenoaks when I was there last October. There is a long shallow valley which runs down the middle of the park which has families of deer in the trees either side that bellow and parade around at that time of year. No matter how many deer I see, I am still captivated by them and have tried to show the magical nature of them. The painting style is messy art nouveau and because it is painted in thick paint, has facets to it that reflect slightly different colours at different times of day. The size is 40x40x1.5 inches, white edged, deep edge canvas, ready to hang and no frame needed.
