Shop Swallow Song - autumn landscape original oil painting Canvas Print by artist Gill Bustamante available at Artist.com. Check out the Canvas Print collections available at Artist.com.A 30x30x1.5 inches autumn landscape original oil painting with three flying swallows over Sussex fields and trees. The style is contemporary impressionist and was painted after walking around ancient fields and woodlands near Ashurst wood in Sussex. Lots of swallows were gathering around a small green valley with trees all around and a stream was running through the bottom of a field. I tried to show the vibrancy of autumn colours but also felt slightly sad that the swallows were obviously preparing to leave the country for winter - lucky them... The painting has white edges and is on deep edge canvas so not frame necessary.
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.
