About this work of Art
Under a Watchful Eye 105x 125x 5.5cm framed
Expressionistic, oils and mixed media original oil painting.
Under a Watchful Eye is inspired by the Cley Marshes at Blakeney, Norfolk. Cley Marshes is a Nature Reserve that has been under the watchful eye of the Bishop family, serving as wardens since 1937. This land was a place where collectors aimed to shoot rare birds but for the last 90 years is a place of conservation and management of habitat.
Texture is created through mud scooped up from the marshes. Building layers, scratching, erasing and then rebuilding, the multi layered surfaces of paint and mixed media, reference the landscape’s evolution in this memorable place.
