Whitby Lifeboat Station
A view of Whitby on the North Yorkshire coast as the sun starts to go down creating a luminosity in everything for a brief moment of time before the light finally fades. You are looking across to the Lifeboat Station on the old side of town and the old church on the cliff top. It is painted in oils 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.
One of my earlier works that I came across when looking for another painting! Lovely shades of pink in the morning sunrise.. I have used thick white paint to create the texture on the waves in the foreground of the painting.. The sides of the canvas have not been painted and you may prefer to frame it. It comes strung ready to hang and P+P in mainland UK is included in the price
The Hart of the Green Wood
The Hart of the Green Wood is a large contemporary style oil painting of an ethereal deer stag in a clearing in a green forest. It is 40x40x1.5 inches. There are many shades of green and many transparent layers which give the painting a mystical fairy tale quality. It also catches the light in interesting ways - a little like a stained-glass window. It is the sort of tall tree green wood you see in dreams. The hart (a stag over 5 years old) stands on the right looking at something we canÃ¢â¬â¢t see. He is materialising and not quite of this world. Real deer have the habit of watching humans in their forests and then vanishing once they have finished staring at you. It always amazes me how such a large animal can do this so easily Ã¢â¬â as if they naturally have some magic to them. The painting was inspired by a walk I took in the Cowdray Forest (RH17 6QG) near Turners Hill. It is full of tall pine trees and ancient oaks and is worth a visit! Dedicated to all fellow dreamers and lovers of fairy tales. Painted on deep edge canvas, white edges, ready to hang, no frame needed.
A DAY OUT IN ST IVES
Girl With Pearl Earstud
This is a portrait painted in the classic style. It was pre-selected for the RP exhibition at the Mall Galleries but did not make the final cut. It sold on the preview evening of a prestigious Yorkshire exhibition. The painting is set in a contemporary dark mahogany effect tray frame measuring 69cm x 48 cm overall x 35 mm deep. I am happy to accept commissions for similar works - please contact me for details.
A Kind of Magic
A Kind of Magic is a large oil on canvas painting of an exuberant river landscape with a kingfisher bird that celebrates the beauty of summer 2020 in Sussex. The river emerges from the dark on the left where a curtain of trees cast shadows into the water in rich blues, greens and purples. Then it flows off into the sunlight and around a bend where you can see a meadow and low hill in the background. An abundance of wild flowers are in the foreground where they seem to be communicating with the kingfisher who is dispensing magic. This is another in a series of river walk inspired paintings that reflect the fun I had during the summer walking along the banks of the Rivers, Ouse, Cuck, Medway and Rother in Sussex. I saw two kingfishers and because it was magic for me, I tried to instil this sense of the wonder of nature into this painting. It was especially poignant as nature was thriving despite the troubles of mankind at that time and it was very heartening to see that. The build-up of different layers of paint make it a little art nouveau and mysterious.
