Buy White Winter Hart - large original oil painting of a white hart deer stag in a semi abstract winter landscape Metal Print by artist Gill Bustamante available at Artist.com. Check out the Metal Print collections available at Artist.com.White winter Hart is a 40x40x1.5 inches large original oil painting on canvas of a white hart deer stag in a semi abstract winter landscape. The colours are muted and blurred behind the stag and there is a suggestion of snow and ice and of silver birch trees at sunset. Behind the hart (stag over 5 years old) there are trees tinged with gold and layers of fields and woodland rising up behind him. The effect is quite art nouveau and expressionist and the paint is thick and luscious. The colours range from pristine white through to yellow, gold, amethyst, turquoise, blues, reds and purple. This painting was inspired by a recent brief snowfall in Sussex near the village of Danehill which has ancient woodland paths and bridleways and rolling fields and gully's between them. This hart is a red deer but the deer I actually saw on this day were Roe deer who are often found in large herds in this area watching you from the trees. I am very pleased with the colours and the real - not real effect of this painting which is as interesting to view close up as it is from a distance. The painting is ready to hang, has white edges and is on 3D deep edge canvas so no frame is needed.
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.
