Buy Wild Souls - Forest Landscape With Deer Paper/Poster Framed Print by artist Gill Bustamante available at Artist.com. Check out the Paper/Poster Print collections available at Artist.com.A group of deer stand in a dark forest with sunlight shining behind them making them into silhouettes. Around them there are intricately weaved twigs and leaves in red, pink, orange and yellow - quite art nouveau in style. Violet and blue lines of energy rise up from the bottom of the forest to where the deer stand. The rest of the painting is dark red and purple which makes the vibrancy of the other colours more pronounced. There is a simple wooden frame around the painting and the paint itself is glossy and thick. The painting was inspired by the life force I often feel in ancient forests.
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.
