Elemental - a sunset seascape with horses
A 36 x 48 x 1.5 inches large original oil painting of horses on a beach at sunset. It is called 'elemental' as the four horses are each running in a different direction and have power as the elements do. There is a suggestion of sunset or sunrise and waves rolling in on the sand with warm pink, orange and yellow clouds in the background. In the distance and from the horses themselves, there is another suggestion of electricity or lighting. The style is partly traditional and partly contemporary with carefully painted horses and then thick decorative layers of paint made in contrast to this. The intention of this painting is to make a representation of an explosive energy being unleashed rather than just being a pretty picture of horses on a beach. Not sure how well I succeeded but I had fun trying.
Colour before night
This is Yr Elen, just outside Bethesda in North wales. I photographed this in June 2017 as the sun was setting, to catch the colour. I have enhanced the colour a little to give the image I enjoy looking at every day, to speak of the warmth of the late evening sun. This is printed on metal with a slime silver aluminium frame. If you would like this printed at a different size on a different material please contact me.
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.
A very large abstract landscape artwork on canvas inspired by Lucy in the Sky with diamonds. Deeply textured and vibrant. This artwork was created in layers of intense colour which are allowed to pool in areas to create a real depth of colour. Multiple bright colours are washed and glazed over the texture in many applications in my signature style. No framing required. Ready to hang.
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.
A long hot summer
Purple Misty Mountains
A peaceful misty mountain scene in relaxing purples. This painting will provide a focal point for any room. The painting continues round the edges of this standard edge canvas 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.
