A Little Bit Country
23 x 23 x 5.5 cm
Framed in Natural Beech
Acrylic on Stretched Canvas
A little bit country. A little bit coast. A little bit city. I love them all for different reasons. The country though is where I was born. Where my extended family still live. I travel the countryside every few weeks to visit. The scenery on those trips is like no other I've come to know. It has a familiarity about it unmatched...a feeling of coming home.
I got that same feeling painting this pretty country scene. Lush pastures with grazing horses that take me back to my childhood (I used to own one and ride), the picturesque distant ranges, and the almost overcast blue grey sky that evokes mood and calm...especially at dawn and dusk as the rising or sinking sun tinges the earth below in a warm embrace.
This is framed in a beech timber frame...paler and lighter than oak, which sets this pretty painting off just beautifully.
NB: While every effort is made to capture the true colours and details of my artwork, every screen is different and art viewed online does not do my work justice. Slight differences may be evident between a screen image and the true tone of my work which is more vivid and beautiful in reality. Scale may also be slightly off due to the insitu art app used, so please ensure you measure your space. Thank you!
