Information: I was inspired by the texture of trees, braken and grasses .. with light coming through the trees illuminating the spaces between, with broad horizontal bands in the sky, distant trees and bracken and thin vertical stripes in the Birches and the light that passes through them.

St Martha - on - the hill Title: St Martha - on - the hill

Medium: Oil on canvas
Style: Realistic
Date: 2007-02-20
Price: Sold
Information: St Martha on the Hill, was commissioned by a client who walks her dog on the hill and around the church almost every day.

She wanted a momentous of a place she loves, but she wanted to capture the dramatic weather that is often found on the hill.
So to the right of the church are very dramatic clouds, dark, angry full of storm. To the left is the bright blue sky and in the churchyard on a head stone a Robin sings.

By these two combinations I was able to capture the dramatic landscape and weather but also the tranquillity and peace that is St Martha on the hill. Unframed prints can be ordered.

Medium: Watercolour on Paper
Style: Realistic
Date: 2007-02-20
Price: Sold
Information: The subject was a captive bird at Birdworld in Hampshire. Sketches were made directly from observation, photographs were taken and later used to continue the painting. The branch was painted directly from life, as was the lady bird on the branch. A side view was preferred as I wanted to create a sense of movement but without using a in-flight position. The Ladybird creates some additional interest, colour and further enhances a sense of direction. There is no background because I like the viewer to focus on the subject without any distraction of a background. Unframed prints can be ordered.
