Monarchs of Spring

£1,500.00

A large oil painting of a green spring meadow with deer

40x40x1.5 inches Monarchs of Spring is a large original oil painting on deep edge canvas with white edges. The monarchs are two red deer, a stag and a doe, who stand in the middle of a spring meadow full of white lacy flowers. Behind them is a tantalizing view of a field seen through the trees of yellow rapeseed flowers and glimpses of this yellow can be seen in a horizontal line all through the painting behind the deer. This was done for the very good reason that I like yellow and love seeing fields full of yellow flowers in Spring and summer. This painting was originally simply a landscape that I painted in May 2018 having been on a walk near Wadhurst in East Sussex through the deer park of a stately home there. I had wanted to reflect the abundance of the wildflowers and trees in meadows all over England during my favourite month. However when I looked at the painting later I realized I needed to add two of the deer. The painting is semi abstract, slightly art nouveau in style and is painted in muted tones of greens, lilacs, yellows and white.

[caption id="attachment_227430" align="alignnone" width="358"] sdr[/caption] I am a professional artist based in Sussex, England and I paint large semi-abstract original landscapes, seascapes, animal and bird inspired paintings in oil on canvas. My painting style is a fusion of abstract, traditional, expressionist, impressionist, and a little art nouveau. Most of my paintings are also available as prints on paper or canvas. Art is a communication form. Many artists don’t know what they are trying to communicate and so try lots of different things before finding out. Probably most of us do. Personally, it took me until I was 54 before I found out what the hell I was trying to communicate and it turned out to be rather simple. I am trying to capture a tiny part of the magic I experience in looking at nature, so that I can keep a bit it of it forever by fixing it as a painting on a canvas. I get inspiration for these images by various means but the best one of all is by walking and looking. I like to print pub walks off of the internet for different areas of South East England and simply go and explore. The instructions are often out of date or the writer was drunk so I often get lost but this is all part of the fun. My ultimate goal with my painting is to one day paint something so captivating that I will not be able to look away. Then I want to disappear into it and find all the things that really ought to be there. It may or may not ever happen but it is a great carrot to my donkey...
