LARGE ORIGINAL Oil Painting - Autumn Triggers


Oct 07, 2016


40x40x1.5 inches


40 x 40 x 1.5 inches original oil painting of an English woodland in Autumn. Semi abstract in style. A path winds through the trees towards a clearing. The sun shines through the leaves and casts sparkles of light on the path. A stag and three other deer peer at us from the banks silently watching to see what we are going to do in their home. The colours are reds, oranges, yellow's, aubergine and and soft lilac - the colours of an English heath and forest in Autumn. This was inspired by a walk in the Ashdown Forest, Sussex recently - a place which definitely has history and mystery to it and I hope I manged to show this. I was going for that moment when Summer turns to Autumn - when signals reach up from the forest to the sky... 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.
