Ready to Hang

Inspired by the sky as the sun is going down in the Caribbean I created this abstract work. I wanted to show the beautiful reds, golds and orange as the sky and sea became one each night. A tiny bit of blue sky is showing through in this painting, just before it becomes completely engulfed by the reds. This painting has been created on a high quality stretched cotton canvas using professional grade acrylic paint. The paint has a metallic hue in the gold colour so this picks up the light when it is on the wall. The paint has been applied thickly and removed with a palette knife to show the blue of the sky and ocean underneath, creating texture and depth to the work. The canvas has a 5cm edge which has been painted so the work continues around the whole painting. It is ready to hang and will be a striking addition to any room.

Living and working in Dorset I am lucky enough to be surrounded by amazing countryside with fabulous big skies. I feel inspired to capture the constantly changing scenes around me, whether it is flowers in summer rain or billowing clouds racing across the sky, coming in off the sea. I want people to be drawn into the painting, to feel the movement of the grass and imagine lying in it, being taken away from their surroundings for a few moments. I like to create vibrant, expressive work, often with very bold colours which can transform a wall. The pictures bring energy, movement and colour which can lift a room. I use acrylics on canvas, using different techniques to create depth and texture. The edges are lightly painted so can be hung without a frame or they can be framed, white box frames particularly enhancing these colourful works. They all have wire so are ready to hang and are signed on the back.
