Serene Sea is an original abstract painting by Daisy Clayton. My aim was to paint a relaxing scene of the coast through the use of calming tones and the illusion of a distant view. I used the gold leaf to represent far away lights and the sun breaking through the clouds. The elements that I wanted to contrast were the warmth of the gold against the cooling tones and the heavy texture against the calming colours whilst helping the viewer to feel a sense of peace when looking at this painting.
Daisy Clayton’s paintings are available for sale online and in our art gallery. Daisy Clayton is a young, largely self taught, contemporary artist from Oxfordshire, England. Before pursuing her art professionally in 2019, she graduated from Queen Mary University London with a Masters Degree in psychology. Using her background in psychology, she built upon her previous skills as a painter by focusing her interest on how a painting can make someone feel and the emotions it may evoke. She paints with acrylics to depict a balance of calming tones and contrasting colours. Generally interpreting significant places, she uses texture and gold leaf to create depth, capturing the viewer by inducing memories, emotions and unique interpretation. One of her recent inspirations came from being in London which led to a painting series as she aimed to capture the fast pace of the city. Following this series, she was commissioned to paint four 100cmx100cm paintings of iconic London views for a head office in London Docklands (Madison Brook International) which she completed earlier this year. Daisy’s artwork is listed in The SOTA Gallery in Witney, Oxfordshire and Park Gallery in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire. Daisy features on the Artistic Impressions page of Conde Nast’s design and decoration magazine The World of Interiors September and October 2020 issues.
