Cheer Up The Hill is an original mixed media painting by Andrea Allen.
As the title of this oil painting suggests, ‘Cheer Up The Hill’ is a celebration of outdoor exploration and the joy of sharing this precious experience. This bucolic depiction of an English landscape conveys a simple narrative that rejoices in family and friendship – uplifting and visually bright with its sunshine palette of summer greens, golds, yellows and blues. Impressionistic in style, this eye catching painting has a naïve quality we have come to identify with Andrea’s enchanting paintings.
Andrea Allen is a landscape artist – she has a studio at home in North Somerset where she lives with her husband, three children and two dogs.
Andrea’s paintings share with us the joyful experience of walking in the countryside whilst reflecting on her wistful musings of family life – creating imaginative, vivid impressions of the landscape that capture the poetic charm and subtle humour observed in the everyday.
Her current works use a range of techniques from textured oils, collage, photography and print to depict scenes that inhabit birds, animals and figures telling stories of ordinary adventures in the countryside and by the sea.
These bucolic images, abundant in character and rich in intricate detail have a unique naïve quality that engages the viewer to observe a simple narrative that resonates with us all.
It is Andrea’s original style, the subject and enchanting use of colour that make these bright, affordable paintings so popular – she continues to sell her work in galleries around the UK.
