Exmoor II: Ivy

Original Artwork

The second of the works done during a recent trip to Exmoor. This piece is inspired by one of the hundreds of beautiful, small details that can be found in our countryside.

The small detail was in a space that was pretty well manicured by the National Trust. As a result, a very mature ivy plant, that had begun to strangle it’s host, had been cut at the base and left to die. This created a wonderful interaction that I thought deserved to be captured on canvas. It says something about the battle for survival that plants have all the time and which largely goes completely unnoticed by us.

Size: 34 x 34cm framed, 30 x 30 cm unframed

Original Artwork

“The second of the works done during a recent trip to Exmoor. This piece is inspired by one of the hundreds of beautiful, small details that can be found in our countryside.

As a result, a very mature ivy plant, that had begun to strangle it’s host, had been cut at the base and left to die.

I draw with Bic biros on raw linen canvas. To prepare the surface I lighten the canvas with a white oil paint wash. Once this is dry, I draw with the biro, as I would with pencil on paper. After the drawing is complete, it’s varnished (to fix the ink in place) and more white oil paint is used to add light and finalise the composition. The Bic ink is actually surprisingly versatile, in terms of its colour. If I want a blue tinge to the work I can smudge it, and a sepia tinge can be achieved by layering white oil paint over it. The paint interacts with the ink as it dries, changing the colour.”

Framing

The frames for my smallest works are bought in especially, in order to keep costs as competitive as possible. They are made from Abachi wood, a lightweight hardwood that is perfect for high quality framing.

Shipping

At present, I can only ship to the UK via the website. I can ship to other destinations, but I’ll need you to get in touch, using the contact me form, for a quote if buying from outside the UK.

All artworks are packaged extremely carefully, keeping your painting safe for it’s journey, no matter how far. I have years of experience packaging original artworks for transport to all parts of the world, so you can have faith your unique piece of art will arrive safe and sound. This can take some time, especially with original paintings, however, I aim to ship all art within 2 working days.
