Sussex Field is an original landscape painting by Margaret Crutchley. In mid-afternoon, the heat haze is enveloping the fields, now losing their fresh green in the heat of the season. The trees move gently in the soft breeze. The atmosphere of the beautiful day is captured in bright colours and large, expressive brushstrokes.
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.
