    Original oil painting, landscape on canvas
  • Out of the Forest is a large oil painting, 36x48x1.5 inches, of a view through the trees of the Ashdown Forest in Sussex to the heathland and fields beyond. It was inspired by the fact that I live very close to the forest and often walk there. The reality of this painting is a little strange. I wanted it to contrast being ‘realistic’ as well a little abstract and have therefore experimented by adding extra shapes and layers and hinting at other things but without losing the overall feeling of a warm golden space under the pine trees contrasted against the colder colours, blues and green of the landscape beyond. To the right of the painting a small deer stag can be seen looking back at us. He is quite well hidden. As a regular walker, I am fascinated by how much landscapes change at different times of day and in different seasons and wanted to try and capture this ever changing reality. I also enjoy spotting the deer who are always there but are clever at hiding. I like the ambiguousness of this painting. It is inviting and yet odd and I find it much more interesting than a traditional landscape painting. It feels like a place that may have a portal to some other universe… White edges, does not need a frame, ready to hang. See video about it: https://youtu.be/G4XSmW_8qfc
  • Spellbound Summer is a 30x30inches original oil painting on canvas of a white owl flying over a summer meadow full of wildflowers. The owl is seen against deep green and blue trees and appears to be flying through a gold transparent veil as she brings a touch of magic to the meadow. There is magic in nature and when I walk through a summer field especially, I see abundant life and activity. A summer field is nature’s internet - wherever you look something is trying to be noticed. That exuberance is what inspired this painting. The painting style is semi abstract as I have blurred the edges and added details towards the centre to give an idea of zooming into the landscape. I like this effect as it is like a snapshot of a memory with some emotions added and fits with my desire to make paintings like little windows that you can escape to whenever you need to! Dedicated to all the ramblers and dog owners I meet when out walking. Painted on deep edge canvas, white edges, no frame needed. I made two short videos of the creation of this painting which you can see here: https://youtu.be/ENfm_GWU7wU and https://youtu.be/Jm-Jpa2N2bs
  • Gentle Souls

    ¥11,828.70
    Gentle Souls is 40x40x1.4 inches large contemporary, semi abstract, art nouveau painting with two spotted fallow deer in a woodland clearing in winter. Both deer stand on a different plane and around them are abstract trees that hint of pine trees and frosty tree branches. There is a suggestion of a hazy sun above tree line and hills in the top right. The two female deer have appeared in a strange space that hints of the heart of a forest but is overlapping in possibilities with transparent layers. The colours range from white and cream through to pale yellow, blues, violets, orange and pinks. The inspiration for the painting came having seen the herd of deer at Knole Park in Kent. I was struck by how elegant and perfect these little deer are, and simply wanted to express this. I chose a semi abstract background as it allows me freedom that contrasts with the traditional handling of the deer. Above to the right is a suggestion of a moon. I like the mystery of this painting and I am happy I have caught some of the essence of the deer who remain a constant source of fascination for me. I often see them when walking and are always amazed at how such relatively large creatures can appear and disappear with such apparent ease. It is quite magical. The painting is on deep edge canvas, white edges, no frame needed, ready to hang. See Video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lQiauXzoKYk
  • Realm of the Ravens is a 40x40x1.5 inches large oil painting of a flock of ravens in flight against a golden sunset behind winter trees. The background is blurred, semi abstract and slightly magical, whilst the ravens are carefully painted in the foreground to give a feeling of depth. The ravens flap and caw as ravens do and although they have a woodland behind them, they are also moving into another realm through the hint of veils which they pass through. One of the ravens is white and the rest reflect the colours that you can see in black ravens of blues, greens and deep violets. Ravens fascinate me as they follow you and report to each other when you are in their territory. A collection of ravens is apparently called a ‘conspiracy’ which seems apt sometimes especially as they seem to laugh at the antics of mammals and humans. The inspiration for this painting is the winter woodland I see around Sussex and the ravens themselves who definitely know something I don’t about the landscapes I walk in. The painting has white edges, is ready to hang, no frame needed. https://youtu.be/8nXcgvD0BHo

  • The Chalk Path

    ¥8,718.19
    The Chalk Path is an oil painting of a winding white chalk path through the Sussex countryside in springtime. It is 30x30x1.5 inches and was painted from my memory as I recalled a walk up the South Downs near Ditchling last spring. The path winds through fields and meadows and wildflowers up towards the ridge of hills that make up the Downs in the distance. There is a pink and purple blossom tree on the left among the hedgerows and gorse bushes. The edges of the painting are blended and blurred and the centre of it has bigger and bolder brush strokes to give the feeling of looking into a memory and drawing you into the landscape. One of the things that makes me love paintings is the fact that you can be somewhere else in an instant when you look at one. I liked being here and I am happy that I have captured a moment of my life that I loved and hopefully will make a few other people happy too. Painted on deep edge canvas, white edges, ready to hang. https://youtu.be/8hKLYs2BOHE
  • Spring Orchard

    ¥8,718.19
    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. This painting is 30x30x1.5 inches and is painted on deep edge canvas, white edges, no frame needed. https://youtu.be/X1OsVWyDsOI
