White Winter Hart


A white hart deer stag in a semi abstract winter landscape

White winter Hart is a 40x40x1.5 inches large original oil painting on canvas of a white hart deer stag in a semi abstract winter landscape. The colours are muted and blurred behind the stag and there is a suggestion of snow and ice and of silver birch trees at sunset. Behind the hart (stag over 5 years old) there are trees tinged with gold and layers of fields and woodland rising up behind him. The effect is quite art nouveau and expressionist and the paint is thick and luscious. The colours range from pristine white through to yellow, gold, amethyst, turquoise, blues, reds and purple. This painting was inspired by a recent brief snowfall in Sussex near the village of Danehill which has ancient woodland paths and bridleways and rolling fields and gully’s between them. This hart is a red deer but the deer I actually saw on this day were Roe deer who are often found in large herds in this area watching you from the trees. I am very pleased with the colours and the real – not real effect of this painting which is as interesting to view close up as it is from a distance. The painting is ready to hang, has white edges and is on 3D deep edge canvas so 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 The instructions are often out of date or the writer was drunk so I often get lost but this is all part of the fun.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...
