The Ravens Wood – original oil painting


76 x 76 cm.  Original oil of an English woodland path. The colours are summer to autumn and there is raven circling above the trees watching as you walk her path. The painting was made after a walk in the Ashdown Forest where ravens and crows seemed to report my progress for the entirety of my journey. I never underestimate birds – they know far more than we assume and I would not be surprised if the Green Man himself is their boss. The painting is quite 3D in aspect and the colours shimmer and change throughout the day as the sunlight moves round the room. The style is impressionist, semi abstract. The edges are white with a hint of lilac and no frame is 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 The instructions are often out of date or the writer was drunk so I often get lost but this is all part of the fun.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...
