White Hart Song large art nouveau landscape with white deer


40 x 40 x 1.5 large original painting on canvas of two white deer in an enchanted landscape. The white hart stands looking up at a white female deer who in turn stands staring at the viewer. We have interrupted their serenading and she is not happy. The style of the painting is art nouveau, semi abstract and hints at autumn trees, a lake or waterfall and is both delicate and bold in the brush strokes used. The albino stag can be found in the British wildlife centre in where I stalked him for a few hours to sketch and photograph him. Deer are quite ethereal and a white deer even more so. The inspiration for the painting was simply to paint some white deer and give them a place to play. Painted on deep edge canvas – edges white, no frame needed.

Gill Bustamante

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 The instructions are often out of date or the writer was drunk so I often get lost but this is all part of the fun.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