Pre-Christmas Sale selection

 *



Today's pre-Christmas Sale selection begins with three still lives, then four Catarinense pictures.



These still lives are very difficult to get right: this is partly due to the context in which they are made. When you're painting outside your session is limited by changes in atmospheric conditions; inside, your session is longer and allows reign to any dissatisfaction. 

Notions of speed, completeness, spontaneity and instinct are central to the working processes I've developed over the years, and if travel paintings produced in  transience develop one aspect of this, then still life develops another.

The year is coming to a close: tomorrow I host a little pop-up exhibition of my pictures up in the north of the island. I shall try to do a little Santa Catarina trip before the year ends: I didn't travel as much I would have liked this year, and I feel seedy as a result.

Pre-Christmas Sale


*


Today's selection from the pre-Christmas sale.






The pochades on this site are currently on sale at a price of 70 UK pounds each- a reduction of over 30%.


Except for Serrana, today's selection is entirely from southern Brazil: it's a more cheerful set of images painted on my various erambulations in Santa Catarina an Rio grande do Sul.

Republishing these brings me a certain nostalgia and I shall try to go somewhere this Christmas period.

Pre-Christmas sale of pochades


*


Today's selection is from Santa Catarina and Sao Paolo state, with a foray to Italy.

These are from the first three years of my working in this small format: the colours are muted and  the effect is slightly romantic. I was much under the influence of Corot, one of the many wonderful traveler painters of the 19th century (a rich cultural phenomenon almost totally destroyed by photography) and this is most obviously reflected in the, perhaps stereotypical, image from Pompeii. 

I sometimes look back over work and think of returning to work in such a style, but I think that would in a creative sense be a mistake, an act of retreat. They do, however, renew my interest in travel, in places and describing the feelings that places evoke.

Two recent sales at the Belevidere Gallery, Aberdeen

Street on the outskirts of SAo Miguel (lady with a parasol)
 oil on card, 13 x 12 cm, 2012, SOLD






 Heath, near Priai Mocambique, oil on card, 13 x 13 cm, 2012, SOLD






One the whole what sells of mine is a. brightly coloured, and b. relevant to the viewer - most obviously by representing a place they know and love.  There is also a quality aspect, but that is so subjective that it is hard to trace.

Both the pictures above were framed, which also helps.

Here are some highlights, this time all from Brazil (Parana, Santa Catarina, and Rio Grande do Sul). They span the years 2010 to 2013- the first three years in which I began working in this small format.

 I went through various phases: the first works tend to be tonal and softly coloured with hazily described forms. These pochades are usually about 10 x 12 cm. Later I became brighter, more precise and larger. In 2015 I started working on a larger size (about 15 x 22 cm) .  In 2016,  missing the intimacy of the smaller format, I returned to it. I experimented increasingly with loose brushwork and a wider variety of paint effects in 2016.

The original conception of these pictures was to capture, intensely, a feeling in the places and times they were painted. I say feeling rather than impression because despite the fact that my methods were indeed impressionist,  my objectives were much more aligned with those of certain Scandinavian Symbolists. In other words, I wanted to play with mood and memory. Hence the importance of travel, a process in which the consequence of memory and mood  is heightened. Hence also, perhaps, the prevailing seriousness of tone in the pictures.

I frequently feel that I failed to do true justice to any of the places that I visited, and shall re-vsit all of them in the next few years.
