Slippery Slope is an original mixed media painting by Andrea Allen.
This landscape painting is inspired by an original drawing Andrea made whilst on holiday with her family in the French Alps, it shares with us a memory of the thrill and drama of the mountains. Using a range of techniques including paper and oil paint Andrea describes the mountainous scenery with collage before adding the trees and figures in textured oil paint as the subject. It is the combined effect of using mixed media for this charming narrative that makes the overall impression so distinctive.
Andrea Allen is a landscape artist – she has a studio 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 works 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, the subject and enchanting use of colour that makes her work so popular with clients looking for bright, affordable art for their home – she continues to sell her work in galleries around the UK.
