A Tree for Daydreamers is an original painting by Nicky Chubb. This painting is in Nicky’s classic style of a cheerful and impactful tree. It has been painted on a linen canvas giving this piece by Nicky a more calming and gentle feel to it. The pink tones in the tree are beautifully interspersed with metallic gold and pearl colours.
Nicky Chubb artist with Wychwood Art. Nicky Chubb comments: My work is essentially optimistic, whether I’m painting flowers or the sea, the emotions I aim to evoke are hope and happiness. The trees, big skies and hardy heathland flowers of the countryside around my home, and the sense of time and belonging that watching them through the seasons brings, are a huge inspiration. I try to capture a sense of air and movement as I paint. I originally trained as a designer (BA hons Fashion, Central St Martins 1993) and the influence of my love of textiles can be seen in my use of colour, texture and pattern. I am currently exploring the different effects, happy accidents and controlled corrosion of mixed media in the backgrounds of my tree paintings to create wilder skies. Drawing the human figure, trying to capture moments in time and changing light is an interest that has always run parallel to my other work. All my figure paintings are in mixed media, either quick, gestural drawings or multi-layered combinations of ink,paint, collage and resin.
