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 and I paint large original landscape and seascape paintings in oil on canvas. I have a Fine Art degree in sculpture (Brighton, 1983) but am mostly self taught as a painter.   My painting style is a fusion of Expressionist, Impressionist, Semi-abstract, Art Deco, a little Art Nouveau and whatever mood I am in that day. I often practice a kind of Impressionism in that I walk, look at things and then paint from memory. The result is that I paint what was impressed upon me when I looked at a landscape - thus a kind of Impressionism!   I am inspired by the patterns of nature and the energy, colours and spaces of the landscapes and animals around me. I like to think that paintings have ‘little souls’ woven into them by artist’s and that these are what call to a viewer (or not as the case may be) and give a painting presence and desirability.   All of my paintings have a story added in to them - sometimes humorous, sometimes mystical, sometimes with a message of hope or encouragement.   My aim is to make art that offers a glimpse of spaces and possibilities where people can escape the manic pace of life and imagine themselves somewhere better – even if just for a little while.
