The Enchanted

Title: The Enchanted
Description: The EnchantedThe Enchanted is a very large oil painting of a river bank with wildflowers and kingfishers on an English summer day in the countryside. It is 36x60x1.5 inches and was inspired by a June walk along the river Adur near Amberley (postcode BN18 9LR). The river meanders through the South Downs in Sussex along grassy banks with wildflowers and wetland birds in abundance. Kingfishers provide little glimpses of magic, when you are lucky enough to spot one, as they are like little jewels that make a river walk even more enchanting – hence the name. There is a particular point at end of June when nature is in complete mad overdrive and this is the feeling I tried to capture with this painting. It is semi abstract and contemporary, messy art nouveau in style. Dedicated to all fellow walkers and people who are working to protect our birds, wildlife and nature. Painted on deep edge canvas, white edges, ready to hang, framing not necessary.

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.
