Song of April ( large abstract landscape painting )

£1,500.00

Song of April is a 36x48x1.5 inches large original oil painting on canvas of a spring inspired abstract landscape. This painting was made in April in England after a wander through fields and hills in Sussex when the pink and white blossom was out and the bluebells were blooming in the woodland and forests. It was a hot day and I came across a young Roe deer watching me from the other side of the Rother river bank near Bodiam castle. My eyesight is blurry and that makes it easier for me to paint in a slightly impressionistic style. This painting reflects my memory of this lovely day with the pinks, lilacs, greens, yellows and whites of trees and wildflowers I saw walking along the river. April is my favourite month as it seems to be the one most full of the energy of nature. You can feel the birds and animals and plants and trees all busily enjoying spring. The painting shows a glimpse from under trees on the left across a small river that leads towards hazy trees further along the valley. In the centre on the opposite bank is a small deer delicately nosing around in the flowers as she did just before she spotted me… Dedicated to all fellow walkers and lovers of the UK countryside. It is painted on deep edge canvas, white edges, ready to hang, 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 The instructions are often out of date or the writer was drunk so I often get lost but this is all part of the fun.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...
