I did this oil on canvas painting as a commission for a client’s Birthday who has fond memories of the barn and the way it has degraded over the decades. I love the vibrant rusty colour of the dilapidated roof. Beauty can come from unexpected places.
From a young age, I developed a fondness for wildlife and dramatic landscapes from spending lots of time in woodland around Horsham and visits to the South Downs. As I got older, my interest grew and trips to Snowdonia and The Lake District really cemented my love for the great outdoors, inspiring my art today. Capturing dramatic landscape scenes, often in moody weather; I paint using oils, in a bold, loose realism style.
