Over the Shoulder
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.
Stormy Poppies lll
A storm aproaching,the skies and sea are grey. The grasses and poppies are starting to blow in the wind.. The waves are gathering pace and stand out from the canvas as do the poppies. I have used high quality canvas and oil paints to create this scene which is based on some memories from holidays in Wales.. It comes ready to hang although I have left the edges of the painting white. Delivery on Mainland UK is free

This is an evocative piece showing two young ladies on tour in their iconic Citroen 2CV with the even more iconic Mont St Michel as a backdrop. They have broken their journey while one of the friends enjoys the sunshine and the other contemplates who knows what? This piece is set in a contemporary tray frame, either white or brushed cream - the choice is yours - which measures 68cm x 48cm overall x 35mm deep.
