Summer Calls

Title: Summer Calls
Description: Summer Calls is a 16x40x1.5 inches wide panoramic oil on canvas painting of a summer landscape with swallows with an abundance of wildflowers which makes the colours rainbow and very vibrant. This painting represents a fond memory of last summer in the fields near where I live in Forest Row. There is a shallow valley of mostly farmland which attracts swallows each summer and I really enjoy watching them wheeling up and down of over the corn fields which have wildflowers growing at the edges. It has been painted as part of a series of four landscapes about the seasons.

Artist Biography:

I am a Sussex based artist who paints large original landscape paintings and seascape paintings in oil on canvas.

My art is painted mostly from memory after having visited somewhere beautiful and are an attempt to capture some of the essence of that place.
​

I gained a fine art degree from Brighton in 1983 and began my painting career as a portraitist and muralist. However, sometime in the late 90�s, after painting my 200th labrador, I realised I was crushingly bored and needed to develop my own painting style and began to paint landscapes and seascapes for my own amusement.



I am inspired by the patterns and movements of nature and animals and eventually developed a painting style that combines traditional painting techniques with more abstract and contemporary techniques.



My artworks evolve from simple ideas, usually after I have taken a walk somewhere. They are expressionistic, impressionist, art deco, art nouveau and something possibly unique to me in the feeling they evoke.



I like to think that paintings have �little souls� woven into them by artist�s and that these are what call to a viewer (or not as the case may be) and give a painting presence and desirability.

​

My goal is to one day paint a place so beautiful I will disappear into it and never be seen again and to create worlds where others can do the same � even if only for a little while.
