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.
"MIMOSA IN BLUE VASE
This is a colourful and realistic, highly detailed painting of sprigs of Mimosa in an old blue vase. It brings the warmth of the south of France into the home. It is painted on a standard depth stretched canvas and is set in a contemporary white tray frame measuring 48cm x 48 cm x 35 mm overall.
Colours of Exmoor
This one is from my Exmoor series, this time on stretched canvas. I am always fascinated by the colours, textures and light of this place, by it's rough beauty. This painting reflects what I sense when I come to Exmoor, the hills, amazing views, the contrast of colours and the feeling of space. This is actually one of my favorite paintings. This painting is framed in a "floating" frame and is ready to hang.
