WINDY HORIZONS is an original oil painting by Andrea Allen.
In this piece Andrea once again takes her inspiration from the imposing Avonmouth skyline, which is ever present on her daily walks through the Somerset countryside. Andrea enjoys creating a narrative that informs us of her everyday observations – these are touching and often humorous depictions of the landscape where she lives.
Using collage, cut outs and oil paint to make this work, we can see how Andrea uses this method to illustrate the simplicity of form, colour and texture to describe patterns in the landscape she is passionate to portray.
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.
