I painted this with a lot more texture concentrating on the colour and depth and also the atmosphere and light.
It's painted in acrylic on stretched canvas with thin multi layers of paint to create the depth.
The artwork is ready to hang with white painted edges and is signed on the back.
Mary Burtenshaw, painter, is available for sale online and in our art gallery at Wychwood Art. Mary was born in London in 1972 and studied Fine Art at Norwich School of Art graduating with a Fine Art B.A. (Hons) in 1994.
She has worked in Children’s Publishing for many years, illustrating children’s books and creating innovative novelty formats to educate and entertain kids.
She has lived in East Anglia and on the South Coast, areas that have greatly influenced her work but travelling also provides inspiration for her landscapes.
Mary paints dramatic impressionist and abstract landscapes which are inspired by her love of the countryside and the many and varied places she has visited, creating the atmosphere and feeling of a place with the use of texture and light.
Her love of the countryside and how it varies in form at different times of the day depending on the light, and how the contours and colours change continuously provides her inspiration.
Mary sees a landscape as evocative, a place that can provide memories but where we can all interpret something different even looking at the same scene, depicting the sense of space and mood in something so vast.
Mary paints in acrylics on paper, canvas or wood panel which all give their own different textures and uses various sizes of brushes to create a more abstract and spontaneous finish. Layers of additional paint create a more blended impressionist style. Each painting is intended to be viewed as if you are there and is something you can identify with, or perhaps as if we have all been there before.
Mary saids: I paint with an emotion that each landscape is unique and locked into an interpretive ‘one moment in time.To discuss any of Mary Burtenshaw's original paintings for sale please call 07799535765 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
