Frost King – a red deer in a frosty forest – art nouveau style
About this piece
40 x 40 x 1.5 inches original oil painting of a red deer stag standing in clearing in a forest in winter. It is painted in thick paint in an art nouveau, expressionist and quite decorative style. The colours are warm pinks, lilacs, reds and Indian yellow but are muted by the white paint which makes the scene a winter frosty landscape. The stag stares at us imperiously, as deer do, as he wonders what we are doing crunching through the forest of his white world. Inspired by recent walk (Dec 2017) in several frosty forest’s in East Sussex. Painted on deep edge canvas – edges white, no frame needed.
