The evening of life
Horses in a Snow Field
Rugged horses turned out in the snow. One horse is rolling whilst the other stands alert in the foreground. Their tracks form a path from a tree on the horizon through which the sunlight is streaming. Bright colours express sunlight on snow. Acrylic on canvas, the painting extends down the sides so there is no need to frame.
Sunset on Liberty
An original watercolour of the sun setting behind the Statue of Liberty. The Manhattan skyline can be seen in the background. Signed by the artist: D Shawcross. Framed and ready to hang. Frame: A 35mm luxury wide reverse shaped dark walnut (with a gold inner edge) coloured picture frame made from real ayous wood with a stain finish. Acrylic safety glazing and 55mm luxury deep-bevel single ivory mount.
Synergy of watercolour paint and digital process. During an art residency in Mexico inspired by Homero Aridjis poem I painted the famous volcano Popocatepetl with the legendry Quetzalcoatl emerging from its heart. Red sun in the west. Long fixed rays piercing the valley. Sky tensely blue. Among the volcanic peaks, the smoking crest of Popocatepetl. From its summit, loose rocks roll down, silent, without weight, like a cataclysm without sound. New Fire by Homero Aridjis
Blackfriars Bridge at Dusk
Lakeland Sunset Calm
A calming lakeland scene inspired by visits to Canada, Scotland and The Lakes. The painting continues round the edges of the frame so it is ready to hang with no need for framing. This creates a very simple but effective style. This painting has been finished with a protective satin varnish. This painting is on a standard edge canvas.
Twilight Grace - art nouveau forest sunset with white owl
Twilight Grace is a 40x40x1,5 inches large original oil painting of an art nouveau style landscape with a white owl. The landscape shows a winter forest scene with a white lake at the bottom and a white owl swooping down from the trees. She is the silent herald of twilight. I painted this in January when purple, yellow, orange and pink are often seen in the evenings as the sun is setting through the naked trees. I was trying to capture the exact moment when the last beam of sun falls through a forest which acts as a signal for owls to start hunting. I painted the barn owl very carefully as I wanted her to look pristine against the slightly odd background of winter trees and white veils that I used to try and show the transition between the day and the night. Painting on deep edge canvas with white edges, ready to hang on wall, no frame necessary.
