Buy Glade Metal Print by artist Gill Bustamante available at Artist.com. Check out the Metal Print collections available at Artist.com.The Glade is an original oil on canvas Sussex landscape painting of a green woodland glade by a stream next to apple blossom trees in springtime. It is 24x30x0.75 inches. The outer edges of the painting have been deliberately blurred so that the viewer is drawn into the centre to see the blossom trees growing by a riverbank. The centre of the painting is painted in more definite brush strokes which gives a sharper 3D effect. The blossom is white and pink and behind them you can see a field and the suggestion of more trees in the distance. It looks a little like a fairy tale but this was me playing that down (believe it or not). The inspiration for this painting was an actual place near where I live between Forest Row and Hartfield. It is the view of a small stream that runs into the Medway River a bit further along. The colours are muted greens, pinks, yellows and white. It is painted on thin canvas with white edges. A frame would complement it but is not necessary. Video: https://youtu.be/EzRd2qyjZU4
I am a professional artist based in Sussex and I paint large original landscape and seascape paintings in oil on canvas.
My painting style is a fusion of Expressionist, Impressionist, Semi-abstract, Art Deco, a little Art Nouveau and whatever mood I am in that day.
I am inspired by the patterns of nature and the energy, colours and spaces of the landscapes and animals around me.
I like to think that paintings have ‘little souls’ woven into them by artist’s and that these are what call to a viewer (or not as the case may be) and give a painting presence and desirability.
All of my paintings have a story added in to them - sometimes humorous, sometimes mystical, sometimes with a message of hope or encouragement.
My aim is to make art that offers a glimpse of spaces and possibilities where people can escape the manic pace of life and imagine themselves somewhere better – even if just for a little while.
