Kings of September - a large expressionist landscape with la


Sep 24, 2016




40 x 40 x 1.5 inches large original oil on canvas, semi abstract, expressionist landscape painting. The painting shows the edge of a lake with two ducks flying out over reeds and flowers with tall pine like trees behind them. It is just past dawn and the light is tinged with gold. There is a mistiness over the water and the trees at the edges of the lake. the colours of the landscape have created the ducks who are at one with it. The painting was inspired by a lake and wetlands close to where I live in Sussex. It continues a persistent theme in my artwork of the landscape creating the animals that live in it just as the animals themselves create the landscape. Edges are white, no frame needed.




About the artist

I am a professional artist based in Sussex and I paint large original landscape and seascape paintings in oil on canvas. I have a Fine Art degree in sculpture (Brighton, 1983) but am mostly self taught as a painter.


My painting style is a fusion of Expressionist, Impressionist, Semi-abstract, Art Deco, a little Art Nouveau and whatever mood I am in that day. I often practice a kind of Impressionism in that I walk, look at things and then paint from memory. The result is that I paint what was impressed upon me when I looked at a landscape - thus a kind of Impressionism! 


I am inspired by the patterns of nature and the energy, colours and spaces of the landscapes and animals around me. 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.


All of my paintings have a story added in to them - sometimes humorous, sometimes mystical, sometimes with a message of hope or encouragement.


My aim is to make art that offers a glimpse of spaces and possibilities where people can escape the manic pace of life and imagine themselves somewhere better – even if just for a little while.
