A Lingering Magic

Title: A Lingering Magic
Description: A Lingering Magic is a 36x36inches oil painting on canvas of an autumn woodland walk. The painting shows a view past colourful autumn trees to a pond on the left where the light through the trees highlights a swallow skimming insects above the surface of the pond. The painting was begun last October after a walk I took in the Lewes area of Sussex. It had been raining for weeks and the Ouse valley was flooded with lots of extra ponds and streams having formed. The swallow was a surprise as she should have left for Africa but maybe she was happy to stay a little longer. She is my lingering magic. I like paintings that transport me to lovely places when I look at them. This one takes me somewhere magical – hence the title. The painting is ready to hang and the edges are dark purple.

Gill Bustamante

Artist Biography:

Gill Bustamante is a professional artist based in East Sussex who creates large semi-abstract landscape, seascape and wildlife paintings in oil on canvas. Her painting style is very distinct and often fuses art-nouveau, impressionist and semi-abstract techniques with traditional portraiture that reflect her love of nature, animals, birds and the flora and fauna of the landscapes around her. She loves the ancient landscapes of England and her paintings often reflect the magical elements that such landscapes have. Gill’s main working method has been the development of a painting style she terms ‘memory impressionism’. This method involves going walking somewhere, looking at and absorbing the things she sees and experiences, and then returning home to her studio to try and capture an echo or essence of the place from memory - including any wildlife she may have seen. By this method, she captures precise moments in times at different seasons and the feeling she has about them. Gill completed a fine art degree in Brighton in 1983 and has painted since she was three. In her own words: “Painting always makes me happy along with cake, bunnies, driving erratically, BBC 6 music and totally irreverent comedy”.
