Flamingos in the Park is an original contemporary abstract painting by abstract artist Diane Whalley. This expressionist landscape artwork on canvas is painted in acrylic with oil pastel and mark making detailing. The many layers of paint add texture to the finished piece.
On more than one occasion have the flamingos in the park at Gruissan and the Camargue in the south of France entertained and brought joy to the day. They are always a draw when travelling by the Parc natural regional de la Narbonnaise and the Parc naturel regional de Camargue, resplendent in their pink plumes. They thrive in the salt marshes that are found between the areas of Marseille and Perpignan. Travelling was a big part of my family life for several years and the memories of our adventures live on through the paintings.
This artwork is sold unframed, but framing can be arranged.

Diane Whalley has original artworks for sale with Wychwood Art in their art gallery and online.
Diane Whalley has been creating and designing for a number of years across a number of disciplines, but since 2016 she began her adventure with abstract painting, mainly in acrylics, sometimes with oil pastel, graphite and mark making details. Her paintings are often a mix of layered muted colours with splashes of brighter shades, using abstract images and ethereal, painterly swathes resulting in fresh, light and immersive compositions. Through the layers of paint can be glimpsed images and detailing. She paints intuitively from the imagination and personal reflections.
After graduating from Liverpool School of Art and Design with a BA (hons) degree Diane worked for a number of years for the media and PR agencies. It was after becoming a mum to two daughters that she returned to her love of art and design. At first she worked with textiles producing and selling quirky and colourful pictures in Warwickshire and Kent. When tragedy struck her family she was propelled onto a new path with her daughters deciding to make Cornwall her home. It was a time of reflection and learning to sail, with longs trips around the Mediterranean. This period has greatly influenced her work - full of contemplation, vibrancy, experimentation and expressionism.
Diane now works from her garden studio and gallery at her home just on the outskirts of Fowey. Here she is surrounded by AONB and just a stone’s throw from the beautiful Cornish coastline, from where she draws some of her inspiration.
Over the years her artworks have been exhibited in Kent, Warwickshire and Cornwall - including Cornwall Open Studios week and selected artworks for Penwith Gallery associate members summer exhibition 2018 and St.Ives Society of Artists winter exhibition 2019 - and she is represented in Oxfordshire by Wychwood Art.
Diane’s artworks can be found in private collections in Paris, Dublin, Australia, South Africa and across the UK.
