of August is very large oil painting 72x48x2 inches of a magical summer
landscape with birds and flowers by a lake. It has a real impact when seen from
a distance as it is the sort of painting you feel you can walk into. The edges
are built up of layers of greens, purples and blues like overlapping leaves and
foliage and through these leaves you can see a glittering lake and distant
trees. To the right are two white egrets who are woven into the landscape or are
maybe even being formed by it. In the foreground are an abundance of brightly coloured
wildflowers with the sparkling water of the green lake behind and between them.
This painting was made by building up many different layers of colour one over
the other so that though it is clear what it is, the style itself is abstract
and contemporary. It was inspired by many walks I took this summer around the
various mill ponds and fishing lakes that are common in the Sussex area. It is
also a nod to the huge Monet waterlilies paintings murals which are similarly
large and hard to make sense of up close but are very clear from a distance and
make you want to be there when you see them. My intention in painting this was
to create an impression of August on a sunny day that I could keep forever. It
is painted on deep edge canvas so no frame is needed and the edges are dark
green to match the painting.
