Echo of an English Summer

Title: Echo of an English Summer
Description: Echo of an English Summer is a large oil painting of a Sussex late summer meadow with deer and wild flowers, art nouveau style. The area that inspired it is the Burwash area where there are lots of fields and streams and gentle slopes that represent best of English countryside for me. This was painted after a walk I did through abundant wildflowers at the end of August when thistles and mauve flowers were all ganging up on me as I walked thought them. I saw a few small deer herds and you can just see two of the deer on the left of the painting watching as deer do. I always feel sad at the end of summer as nature winds down for the autumn and winter. It is like a theatre after the cast has left. It is a beautiful melancholy and I paint one every year that represents this feeling. Dedicated to all the farmers and environmentalists who are helping to preserve our meadows and hedgerows and wildlife. It is 40x40x1.5 inches, white edges, frame not needed as is wide edge canvas

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.
