Bluebell Symphony - a very large oil painting of a Spring Woodland
Bluebell symphony is very large original oil painting on canvas (48x48 inches) of a Spring woodland painted in a semi abstract, impressionist style. As it is a large painting, it gives the viewer the feeling that they can walk into this golden Spring wood with its bluebells and wildflowers and green trees and follow the sunlight path out to the fields beyond. A glowing yellow stag can be seen near the path looking at us imperiously as stags do. He is a guide to somewhere wonderful but is assessing our intentions before he leads us forward. In the foreground to the left is a large tree which sets the perspective for the rest of the painting. The bluebell flowers and leaves are painted in a semi abstract style which by their colours and positions hint at what they are but in an ambiguous way. This is because when I painted this it was from memory and I remember impressions and colours and motions but not details. I like it this way as it gives a transient feel which is what I wanted to capture here as that is what bluebell season is. For many people it is their favourite season (including mine) and I am happy to have painted a place where I can escape to a Spring woodland among the trees and flowers whenever I have had enough of an English winter... It is 1.5 inches think, edges white, frame not necessary, ready to hang.

October Glows - an autumn wood abstract painting
A 30x30 woodland path abstract landscape painting in rainbow colours. This painting was painted after a walk I took near Glyndebourne in East Sussex. It was a beautiful clear autumn day and the path was lined with trees glowing yellow, red, purple and green in the low autumn sun. This path led up to a steeper path that eventually goes to the top of the South Downs. I tried to capture my impression of the place in an abstract, possibly expressionist style using very thick wet oil paint and I worked into (wet into wet) over the course of two days. I wanted to capture the low angle of the sun and the impression of the light through the leaves picking out glimpses of ivy on the ancient trees, ferns and leaves in autumn golds and greens. I was very pleased with the result as it gives a satisfying flavour of the scene and how I felt being there rather than trying to be traditionally realistic. I love paths such as these as I always imagine something fantastic being about to be discovered just around the corner. Sometimes I am rewarded with a glimpse of a deer or fox but usually a view through trees to another world keeps me very happy.
