BLUEBOTTLE AMBUSH is an original oil painting by Andrea Allen.
This captivating oil painting draws us in to observe the wonderful surface texture and the vibrancy of the blue and green palette that conveys the vivid light on a summers day. To sit and paint from life gives Andrea’s work a deeper and more meaningful resonance as we imagine her sitting under a tree being bothered by Bluebottles as the title informs us. Her subject once again portrays the landscape where she lives and her fascination with the Somerset Hills, the sea and Wales beyond.
Andrea Allen is a landscape artist working at home in North Somerset where she lives with her husband, three children and two dogs.
Andrea’s paintings share with us the joyful experience of walking in the countryside whilst reflecting on her wistful musings of family life – creating imaginative, vivid impressions of the landscape that capture the poetic charm and subtle humour observed in the everyday.
Her current artworks use a range of techniques from textured oils, collage, photography and print to depict scenes that inhabit birds, animals and figures telling stories of ordinary adventures in the countryside and by the sea.
These bucolic images, abundant in character and rich in intricate detail have a unique naïve quality that engages the viewer to observe a simple narrative that resonates with us all.
It is Andrea’s original style and enchanting use of colour that makes her work so distinctive – she continues to sell her work in galleries around the UK and remains popular with collectors.
