A sussex autumn landscape with deer

30 x 30 x 1.5 inches semi abstract landscape painting of two deer in an an autumn wood. The background of this autumn inspired landscape was painted in a loose, abstract style with a few trees and leaves hinted at and the idea of golden light coming through trees. Some of the beams of light shine onto a clearing where a red deer stag and a doe have just appeared. I wanted to try and recreate the ethereal nature of deer as well as the experience of a walk in an autumn forest. It is something many people love to do as there is an atmosphere under trees that is both reassuring and a little melancholy in the autumn. Around the deer I used some bright gold yellow which adds to the magical element of the painting. The colours are warm and autumnal and are reflecting what I see around me right now in the Ashdown Forest area of Sussex (October 2018). Painted on deep edge canvas – edges white, no frame needed.

[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 The instructions are often out of date or the writer was drunk so I often get lost but this is all part of the fun.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...
