Layers of Autumn

Title: Layers of Autumn
Description: Layers of Autumn is a large square oil painting of a woodland autumn path with a deer stag materialising out of it. It is 48x48x1.5 inches, deep edges, no frame needed and ready to hang. The painting shows a view down an autumn path and is painted in a contemporary, slightly art nouveau style. It has many overlapping layers and transparent veils that make it look as if reality is shifting. There are shafts of sunlight through vibrant coloured leaves which overlap vertical lines and make a slightly geometric composition. The white stag is painted in thick paint but remains a little mystical as he is not fully formed. Autumn paths through woodland are usually inspiring. This one is actually based on one that used to be an old railway line from East Grinstead to Groombridge where it is common to see deer through the gaps in the trees and is always a treat

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.
