The Scarecrows Abode
October Glows - an autumn wood abstract painting
A 30x30 woodland path abstract landscape painting in rainbow colours. This painting was painted after a walk I took near Glyndebourne in East Sussex. It was a beautiful clear autumn day and the path was lined with trees glowing yellow, red, purple and green in the low autumn sun. This path led up to a steeper path that eventually goes to the top of the South Downs. I tried to capture my impression of the place in an abstract, possibly expressionist style using very thick wet oil paint and I worked into (wet into wet) over the course of two days. I wanted to capture the low angle of the sun and the impression of the light through the leaves picking out glimpses of ivy on the ancient trees, ferns and leaves in autumn golds and greens. I was very pleased with the result as it gives a satisfying flavour of the scene and how I felt being there rather than trying to be traditionally realistic. I love paths such as these as I always imagine something fantastic being about to be discovered just around the corner. Sometimes I am rewarded with a glimpse of a deer or fox but usually a view through trees to another world keeps me very happy.
Evening Sun over the Southern Pennines
The Field of Poppies
With this painting, I took from a photo on a card. This was a big challenge for me as it was one of my first boxed canvas oil paintings.I love the strong colours, reds and greens and the way the sun strikes a pose, blending in making its mark. This picture would sit nice on any wall, it's ready to hang, no framing needed.
Moorings at dusk
Moorings at dusk 51x76x1.5cm Light is dims; a hazy mirage alters colours and juxtaposed forms that mingle with the darkening sky. Dark waters catch intermittent light. The tide recedes leaving beached crafts, masts askew whilst others come to moor. The cool breeze blows across hot sands, filtering and bellowing the sails. Oils on canvas, painted around sides, ready to hang. Free UK delivery by recognised courier. £275
