The Paintings

In my artwork, I have explored a wide range of subjects and artistic approaches. My work is characterised by my passion for colour and light. Paintings are created in artist quality acrylics, or oils. They are usually built up with many layers of colour. Using the pigments modern paint production provides I love to create new forms inspired by the beauty of nature.

Many of my paintings, especially the larger ones, take a number of years to complete.

 

Paintings that you find in the current 2020 gallery may have been begun in 2017. Several years may pass, with me looking at a painting regularly, until at last  I intuit the colour or shape that the painting needs to be complete.  

I live in the countryside of West Wales, and the drab winter landscapes were what originally inspired me to add colour to my life through my art.

 

Covid 19 Update

Many paintings currently for sale are in the online shop. I am still taking online orders and dispatching paintings to customers. Please email me if you want further information about deals and prices.

My studio and gallery complex have been closed since the start of  lock-down in Wales. I hope to reopen to visitors again on August 10, 2020. Please email me at: goldenhillart@gmail.com, or telephone me for an appointment to visit. Social distancing does still apply.

 

Tips on framing and hanging your artwork

Acrylics painted on acrylic paper or canvas board do not need to be framed with glass unless specifically required. Works on acrylic paper can be mounted on board and directly framed with the frame of your choice. It can also be glued onto an unpainted canvas of the same size. Because my work often has interesting textures it is best displayed without glass.

Works on canvas board are also best mounted on board to retain rigidity and then directly framed without glass.

Paintings on  stretched canvas can be hung directly on the wall.

Some of my paintings are on high quality canvas that has been stretched over a frame. The  large ones can be detached from the frame and delivered rolled. Then you can either have it framed, or stretched over a frame and hung directly on the wall.

You will also find in the shop double mounted paintings ready to frame in a 4” (10 cm) double mount. These will need to be framed with glass (unless you  remove the mount.)
