Product description:Forest Wraiths is a 48x36x1.5 inches large semi abstract oil painting of red deer in a pale forest. A stag and two female deer stand in a clearing in a mystical forest and seem to be winking in and out of existence. The colours are fresh and neutral and muted with white veils and pale yellows, lilacs and blues. The painting style is a fusion of art nouveau, traditional and abstract and was made by building lots of transparent layers of paint over each other with the aim of making the scene not quite of this world but not too far removed from it either. Deer have a way of appearing and then vanishing, especially in woods and forests and this idea is hinted at in this painting. I also wanted to catch an impression of light through the trees with a little touch of the gold of a sunset - though not in a 'realistic' way. It is more hint of different realities slightly overlapping each other to give an element of magic. I live near the Ashdown Forest so though I often see deer, always find it thrilling. Painted on deep edge canvas, white edges, ready to hang.

As a child I taught myself to draw and paint by copying animals and horses out of books on an almost daily basis. Then in 1979 I did a foundation course at Chelsea and then a degree course at Brighton where I graduated in 1983 with a fine art degree in sculpture. I then worked in a studio on the seafront for a while making sculptures with an architect for clubs and hotels. ‚Äč On moving to East Grinstead in the late 80's, I began painting for an art agent that specialised in...read more
