Original framed oil painting titled - 'French Mist' measures 60 x 30cm
This landscape painting was inspired by a bicycle ride through the salt marshes of Ile de Re, an island on the north west coast of France. I took a pre sunrise morning bicycle ride though a rare summer sea mist that had settled on the nature reserve, using photographs and videos to memorise the experience and it was such a strong experience that still 5 years later I can call up the the smell of the sea air just by closing my eyes. The work of art for sale here was painted with the memories of colour, smell and sense, that sits within my bones.
The oil paints have been enriched with bronze ink and charcoal and is on thick handmade artist paper. It has been framed with a simple dove grey wooden surround to and is under glass. The glass used in the framing has been designed and made specially for the art industry to protect the painting from UV light and reduce the reflections.
To enhance my writings on this painting, view one of the videos that I took in Ile De Re, you will find it in the video section.
