Return of the Light
1 in stock
“The Return of the Light” expresses a peaceful forest near my home in the Peak District. The light is returning and the days are gradually becoming longer again. This painting celebrates light and dramatic shadows with bright tones of blue, gold, copper and turquoise, which are so uplifting. It was very peaceful to create this painting, and the copper tones have an iridescent quality to them.
An original artwork, one of a kind, this painting has been created with high quality acrylic paints on deep edged canvas. I begin with observation of the place making notes and taking photographs to work from in the studio. From these beginnings I work intuitively, painting some base layers with a brush and then impasto techniques layer on layer applied with a palette knife. Harnessing optical mixing techniques employed by the impressionists and some of the methods of the old masters such as scumbling and glazing I continue working until the painting reaches a natural conclusion. The result is a contemporary painting, which lies somewhere between abstraction and realism. The painting continues round the sides, a frame is not needed and it is ready to hang.
