Through the Veil

Title: Through the Veil
Description: 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.

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.
