Cross Patch is an original mixed media painting by Andrea Allen. The subject of this vivid oil painting sits significantly centre stage, proud in his black and white coat of feathers – a bullying predator of small birds, his sinister presence evokes an emotive response as Andrea humorously imagines him as the ‘Joker’ of the bird kingdom. The inspired use of vibrant colour and bold narrative gives this decorative painting an enchanting quality. Painted in the summer months, the scene looks out to Andrea’s favourite view of trees on the farm where she lives and takes long daily walks.
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 makes these bright, affordable paintings so popular – she continues to sell her work in galleries around the UK.
