Surfers Paradise is an original mixed media painting by Andrea Allen.
Surfers Paradise was inspired by an original drawing made whilst on holiday with her family in Sennen Cove, Cornwall – it’s about the connection of people who love the beach and are committed to protecting it for the future. This painting beautifully captures the simple narrative of friends and families enjoying beach life. Richly painted in textured oils and impressionistic in style, this artwork has a charming naïve quality that resonates with us all.
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.
