Up on the Downs (Original, Signed and Framed)

  • £700.00

Painting size: 80cm x 60cm

Over the summer of 2020, with a good friend of mine, I did quite a bit of walking and running on the South Downs, in Sussex.  During strange times it was great to get out from being indoors and in to a wide open space. 

Despite everything we had a glorious summer weather wise and there's a brightness that comes in mid summer in the middle of the day.  I've attempted to capture this here.  It is no particular place, simply painted from memory and the feeling of openness the downs affords.  Though there aren't stone walls in abundance on the downs they exist in my painting!  Here I'm looking to combine the softer tones of impressionism with the bolder palettes of post impressionism, from Monet to Kandinsky, only in watercolour.

The cost includes exceptional quality framing, dry mounted (meaning the painting remains completely flat forever), art glass (thick UV reflective glass ensuring the painting doesn't fade), mounted and framed with the best materials.  Close from Natural Oak, Limed Oak, Dark Stained Oak or White Washed Wood (my favourite!). 

Of course if you'd prefer to frame the painting yourself then the cost is reduced.
