Crystal Sea Angels
Crystal Sea Angels is 40x40x1.5 inches large oil painting of an underwater seascape of three queen angel fish swimming in formation. The three fish swim like ballet dancers and are intent on a purpose we cannot see. The surface of the blue sparkling water of the ocean can be seen above them rippling in small waves and the light twinkles through the waves and makes fleeting patterns on the rippled sandy seabed. The sand is multi-coloured like the sands around Barbuda and Barbados where pink coral has coloured the sand pink. I chose the angel fish for this composition because they are beautifully coloured and look as if the back ground of the pink sand and the turquoise blue sea was made just for them. Which possibly it was. This is another in a series of underwater seascapes that I have been painting with very fond memories of snorkelling in the Caribbean. I paint one of these every year as winter draws in to help me retain the essence of summertime and holiday feelings. It is painted on deep edge canvas, edges white, ready to hang.
This is an oil painting on canvas of a still life of some beautiful daffodils and tulips in a vase in front of my window. The price is for it framed in a brown wooden frame with an inner gold line as in the photo. It is also available unframed for £155. Please contact me if you would like it unframed as I will have to alter the price.
Seeing Beyond is 48x36x1.5 inches large oil on canvas painting, semi abstract art nouveau style dreamscape. The painting shows a view through a golden curtain where the gap is forming a distorted number eight or infinity symbol. Through this shape there is a white stag looking out over a lake with a waterfall and blossom trees all around him. Up in the tree on the left is a white raven. The gold curtain is transparent so you can see this other world through it. I have always believed in other universes and other realities and this is a painting that tries to show this in an aesthetically pleasing way (I hope). The white stag and the white raven are there to add a little a mystery and have their own story to tell. I am particularly happy with the change in colours between the gold curtain which is quite warm and colder colours of the landscape beyond as it adds another aspect again to a slightly strange fairy tale type painting. It is painted on deep edge canvas, white edges, ready to hang
Blustery Day in the Peak District
SUNFLOWERS IN BLUE VASE
This is a very detailed and realistic painting of sunflowers - a taste of the warmth of the south of France in the home. Meticulously painted to make the viewer feel almost able to reach out and touch the petals and leaves. It is set in a light coloured contemporary tray frame measuring 68cm x 68cm x 35mm overall.
This was one of those misty autumn days where sun suddenly peaked out, clearing some of the mist, creating colourful patterns on the hills. I love the soft light of these days and the pastel colours. Painted on oil primed linen canvas board with brushes and palette knife using the top quality oil paints. This painting is varnished with with a retouching varnish and if desired you can have it varnished in about 4 months with the final layer of quality varnish for the best protection.
Over the Shoulder
The Herald is a large, 36x48x1.5 inches, oil on canvas painting of a red deer stag in an autumn forest. The painting takes the viewer down a path through the autumn trees with vibrant coloured bracken and leaves to either side. The stag stands to the left watching. He is the herald of autumn and he has made his claim on the autumn forest. At the end of the path the light shines through the trees so brightly that you can't see what is beyond them. But it is something beautiful. The colours are very bright autumn colours ranging from deep purple through to wine, orange, yellow, lilac and blue. It has been built up using thick, generous layers of paint and is expressionist and expressive in style. I painted it after a few October walk in the Ashdown Forest where I saw these colours in the trees and heather and ferns as well as the occasional deer spotted in the distance. It is painted on deep edge canvas, white edges, ready to hang, no frame needed.
Stormy Poppies lll
A storm aproaching,the skies and sea are grey. The grasses and poppies are starting to blow in the wind.. The waves are gathering pace and stand out from the canvas as do the poppies. I have used high quality canvas and oil paints to create this scene which is based on some memories from holidays in Wales.. It comes ready to hang although I have left the edges of the painting white. Delivery on Mainland UK is free
