Oil on Canvas
Enchanted is a summer landscape with a white owl 40x40x1.5 inches large original oil painting on canvas. The painting shows a verdant summer meadow with lots of wildflowers and grasses next to a river that leads off into the distance with trees and low hills in the background. On the left, a white owl is swooping down towards the river with a gold curtain behind her. The colours are very vibrant and was inspired by a walk I took near Cooksbridge in Sussex along the river Ouse with the hills of the South Downs in the background. It was a warm day and pink and yellow flowers grew along the river bank. I could hear sheep, insects and wild birds who all added to the hum and haze of a perfect English summer day. It felt magical so I enhanced that further by adding a white owl which always look perfectly ethereal wherever they are. It is painted in an unusual painting style that sees many overlapping glazes and brush strokes that rise vertically off the top of the canvas. It is painted on wide edge canvas, white edges, frame unnecessary, ready to hang.
