Spring Orchard

Title: Spring Orchard
Description: Spring Orchard is an original oil painting of pink and white apple blossom trees in an orchard by a stream. The inspiration for the painting was of an orchard I found last May near Forest Row in Sussex. The style is contemporary, art nouveau and expressionistic was and was made by blending thick layers of paint over and over again and adding more and more colours and paint daubs until the paint is extra thick in the centre. I kept the edges blurred to help with the effect of it being a painting of a memory. The colours are pale greens, whites and pinks. This place was magical and I wanted to capture a little of the moment. I would not have been surprised to see mythical creatures appear in the fields beyond the stream but instead was happy just to listen to the birds who love May even more that I do.

Artist Biography:

I am a Sussex based artist who paints large original landscape paintings and seascape paintings in oil on canvas.

My art is painted mostly from memory after having visited somewhere beautiful and are an attempt to capture some of the essence of that place.
​

I gained a fine art degree from Brighton in 1983 and began my painting career as a portraitist and muralist. However, sometime in the late 90�s, after painting my 200th labrador, I realised I was crushingly bored and needed to develop my own painting style and began to paint landscapes and seascapes for my own amusement.



I am inspired by the patterns and movements of nature and animals and eventually developed a painting style that combines traditional painting techniques with more abstract and contemporary techniques.



My artworks evolve from simple ideas, usually after I have taken a walk somewhere. They are expressionistic, impressionist, art deco, art nouveau and something possibly unique to me in the feeling they evoke.



I like to think that paintings have �little souls� woven into them by artist�s and that these are what call to a viewer (or not as the case may be) and give a painting presence and desirability.

​

My goal is to one day paint a place so beautiful I will disappear into it and never be seen again and to create worlds where others can do the same � even if only for a little while.
