Taking Flight is an impressionistic, semi abstract painting of the incredible Murmuration of the starlings. Adele has been fascinated with this mesmerising spectacle and has created a series of Tondo works, depicting this wonderful acrobatic display that appears in our sky’s every year. Though this painting is full of drama, it has a simple delicacy and rhythm to it, as the movement of the birds dance across the painting.

Adele Riley, painter and illustrator, is available for sale online and in our art gallery at Wychwood Art. Adele Riley as a British-born artist living in Gloucestershire, I'm surrounded by some of the most natural and inspiring surroundings in the UK, well-placed to benefit from a huge variety of light, texture, and drama – perfect for what I do. I usually begin by sensing the subject, sometimes using a photo or a sketch to extract weather, light, horizons and shapes to commit the scene to canvas with a variety of media and paint. What I fear most is repetition, so I experiment a lot with media and colour, asking questions of the fresh and the new, trying things out (getting things wrong), but all the time learning and looking to improve. Having studied Illustration at Epsom School of Art, I have always continued to learn and develop from my experiences and travels. Not having a formal arts grounding I found to be a positive thing, as I could appreciate painting by it’s many disciplines. I learned more by challenging the rules of fine art, as well as applying them. It helped drive my enthusiasm until I arrived at a style of painting that represents me as an artist. In addition to painting, I teach art to adults and children both through my business based in Gloucester, and in surrounding local schools. My paintings are for sale, price on application, and all are available as a print To discuss any of Adele Riley's original paintings for sale please call 07799535765 or email deborah@wychwoodart.com
