Summer Garden Recollected Reflections 2

SOLD.....to a collector in Perth, Australia

Original
Oil on canvas
32cm x 32cm
Sold
This painting continues a body of work where the catalyst is, singular or multiple reflections, often in water but could be anything that reflects light. I often sit, fascinated by the ever-changing compositions that occur with, wind blowing the surrounding fauna, changing light levels, colour bouncing around on water. This painting was inspired by my garden, the deep yellow flowers of courgettes, tomato flowers and Honeysuckle to name but a few. I could simply paint the scene, but for me, the essence is in the recollection, the painting, is my interpretation of a recollected memory.

This painting was inspired by a fascination with reflections and looking through water to the riverbed. I love how, reflected in the water, the sky and the ground become one entity, changing with the clouds and movement of the water, and becoming almost an abstract painting in constant evolution. These paintings are not a direct representation but a recollected memory expressed in paint.

Apart from painting, my other love is growing vegetables. This semi abstract painting was inspired by looking from the outside through the membrane of the polytunnel at the plants within, because of the membrane is opaque the colours are diffused and depending on the weather conditions, not only do you see the diffused colours from inside but you get reflections from the sky and surrounding foliage.

Soar Mill Cove South Devon

Soar Mill Cove South Devon

Soar Mill Cove is located on the South Devon coast near Salcombe. A tiny remote sandy inlet set below the craggy black towers of Bolt Head. Access only on foot via the South West Coast Path or somewhat less dauntingly from the Soar Mill Cove Hotel. Or visit by canoe or boat from Salcombe. Well worth the effort of getting there.

Painted after one of my favorite walks along the South West coast path of the summer. I use my trusty old Nikon as a sketch book and collect as much information for a painting as possible, I then use the digital image as reference and let my memory and imagination inform the actual painting.

This oil painting has recently been completed, so will need time to dry before being despatched. It can be reserved and will be ready for christmas delivery.

Hemerdon Mine

Hemerdon Mine

This depiction of Hemerdon Mine , located on the edge of Dartmoor National park, is sadly no longer in existence as it has now been reopened and developed into one of the biggest tungsten mines in Europe, on the one hand good for the local economy, but the development has erased one of my long term hiking routes and one of my reliable creative sources.

As a romantic, the area held a poeticism, that appealed to my soul on many levels and was the cataylist for much of my work over a period of twenty five years or more.

This painting was originally started in 2013 and was never fully brought to a conclusion. The ‘Recollected Reflections’ body of work and this painting have a common approach, although this painting is descriptive, they are both memories of the essence, of place and emotion.

The Watchman

The Watchman

Devil’s Point is at the mouth of the River Tamar and Plymouth’s natural harbour, the Sound. This is an area steeped in naval tradition; it is from here that countless families have stood and waved off their loved ones.

This painting was Editor's Choice in the June 2014 issue of 'The Artist' magazine.

The scene in the painting actually exists. ‘Devil’s Point’ is an outcrop of land lying between the River Tamar and Plymouth’s natural harbour, the Sound. This is an area steeped in naval tradition; it is from here that countless families have stood and waved off their loved ones. Walking around the area at the time of the conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq, I found myself at the end of one such farewell, as the last families were departing. Devil’s Point was once more abandoned to the wind and the waves, a natural silence turned poignant by the ship disappearing over the horizon and the one lone bystander. ‘Waiting’ forms part of a set of paintings produced as a response to British and American foreign policy and armed conflict in general. This series explores how decisions made by politicians have repercussions for ordinary men and women and can change the lives of so many throughout generations. This painting is currently Editors Choice in the June issue of 'The Artist' magazine

Photography and Painting have always been the tools of preference for my creative process with one informing the other. In parallel with the photographic landscape interventions and the Found String project, developed a series paintings in which the main criteria was ‘painting that which I could not photograph’, ie, the essence, emotional response of a place. The paintings had to have a certain physicality, both in the scale and the application of the paint and felt tactile and of the place. For this purpose I used cutting discs found in situ at Hemerdon Mine to apply the paint along with pallet knives and found objects, a practice that I still use today !

This painting continues a body of work where the catalyst is, singular or multiple reflections, often in water but could be anything that reflects light. I often sit, fascinated by the ever-changing compositions that occur with, wind blowing the surrounding fauna, changing light levels, colour reflecting colour onto different surfaces. Colour reflecting off the polytunnel and colour showing through. the light reflecting off shed glass, wet leaves, buildings. I could simply paint the scene, but for me, the essence is in the recollection, the painting is of an emotion and is my interpretation of a recollected memory. I estimate this painting will be ready to despatch by the end of October 2016 because the painting has been recently completed and will need to dry. This painting can be reserved with a small deposit, please contact me for further information.

I often sit, fascinated by the ever-changing compositions that occur with, wind blowing the surrounding fauna, changing light levels, colour bouncing around on water. This painting was inspired by my garden, the deep yellow flowers of courgettes, tomato flowers and Honeysuckle to name but a few. I could simply paint the scene, but for me, the essence is in the recollection, the painting, is my interpretation of a recollected memory.

This expressive landscape oil painting continues a body of work where the catalyst is singular or multiple reflections. I often sit, transfixed by the ever-changing compositions that occur with changing light levels and colour bouncing around on water. This painting was inspired by my garden, the beautiful yellow flowers of courgettes, tomato flowers and Honeysuckle to name but a few. I could simply paint the scene, but for me, the soul is in the memorizing and painting the essence of that, trying catch a fleeting feeling and colour.

Oil on canvas
50cm x 50cm

£395.00
These expressive landscape paintings are inspired by a fascination with reflections and looking through water to the riverbed. I love how, reflected in the water, the sky and the ground become one entity, changing with the clouds and movement of the water, and becoming almost an abstract painting in constant evolution. These paintings are not a direct representation but an expression of a recollected memory. They evolve organically with the process of applying paint, within the formation of a fluid composition.

Autumn, Down Tor, Dartmoor

Autumn, Down Tor, Dartmoor

This oil painting evolved from one of my frequent walks on Dartmoor. The moors, this autumn have been a joy to behold and the landscape truly inspirational, almost cloudless blue skies combined with the vibrant colours of autumn. I use my trusty Nikon as a sketch book and collect as much information for a painting as possible, I then use the digital image as reference and let my memory and imagination inform the actual painting. My recent paintings have been of a semi abstract language but thought this beautiful memory of Dartmoor demanded my representative interpretation.

Blue Door Dartmoor

I have walked for many years past this blue door on Dartmoor which had been utilised as a fence by a farmer to block a hole in the hedge to stop sheep escaping. I always thought there was a something poetic in this composition and when a foxglove grew in front, I just had to paint it.
