Twilight Grace

£1,500.00

Twilight Grace is a 40x40x1.5 inches large original oil painting of an art nouveau style landscape with a white owl. The landscape shows a winter forest scene with a white lake at the bottom and a white owl swooping down from the trees. She is the silent herald of twilight.  I painted this in January when purple, yellow, orange and pink are often seen in the evenings as the sun is setting through the naked trees. I was trying to capture the exact moment when the last beam of sun falls through a forest which acts as a signal for owls to start hunting. I painted the barn owl very carefully as I wanted her to look pristine against the slightly odd background of winter trees and white veils that I used to try and show the transition between the day and the night. Painting on deep edge canvas with white edges, ready to hang on wall, no frame necessary.

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 The instructions are often out of date or the writer was drunk so I often get lost but this is all part of the fun.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