Oil on canvas
80 x 55 x 4 cm framed
After a winter walk in Hevingham woods in Norfolk on a foggy day I was inspired by the red and purple colours of the grasses, ferns and trees which appeared vivid against the blue grey fog. I then embarked on several drawings to capture the scenes and have developed the drawings into oil paintings, of which The Poachers is one.
The combination of a smooth soft application of oil paint set against strong directional brushwork and texture defines the distant silhouettes and detailed foreground. All my current work is concerned with using two specific colours within the palette – phthalocyanine turquoise and cobalt violet light.
Two figures, the poachers, move into the distance their forms blurring into the fog and I have strived to capture the colour perspective of the receding figures and woods. A soft pinkish sky and a circling Kite overhead adds the final touches to this atmospheric Norfolk landscape painting.
Professionally framed in a warm grey floater frame, ready to hang. Floater frames hug the sides of a stretched canvas and have no glass.
