Original Landscape Painting
Acrylic Painting on a Deep Box Canvas.
(Please note that in situ images are purely an indication of how a piece may look).
Thick yellow paint recreates the feeling of the bright, warm sun, which lights up the rape field and helps us imagine the clear air, the new leaves and the hope that is brought by Spring.
After many years working in Science, including work as a veterinary surgeon, Margaret returned to her childhood love of Art some twenty years ago. She soon settled on two favourite genres: landscape and portraiture; of both humans and animals. Margaret’s landscapes are inspired by a love of nature and the countryside and the emotions which they evoke in us. Bright colours and large, expressive brushmarks are used to convey a lively and atmospheric depiction of the scene. In her portrait studies, she is totally fascinated by the challenging art of capturing, not only a likeness, but also the character and situation of a subject. She does this by careful study of stance, movements, gestures and expressions. These are translated into slightly simplified images in telling colours, using oil or acrylic paint on canvas. Margaret Crutchley lives and works in London.
