Langley Reservoir in the snow
End of a perfect day
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
Alexandra Park - foggy morning
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.
A New Summers Day
This large 36in x 36in deep edge canvas will brighten any room it hangs in. A New Summers Day is my signature painting ,but has only been painted in this size once before. Created using high quality oil paints, it has been a long time in the making due to my ill health..and could be the only one I paint for a long time. Lots of lovely textures abound in the painting. I have used a knife to create the waves--this gives a lovely textured finish, and the thick paint used to do the poppies adds more detail that stands out from the canvas.. There is a very subtle twinkle on the sea as the light catches it.. The painting continues around all of the sides and it does not require a frame.. P+P in mainland UK is included in price but personal delivery and hanging is possible, please contact me for details. NOW SOLD
