Autumnal Magic

The first of two posts showing the prints that will be available from the exhibition at The Artist; please see previous post for details.

 Rocks, Lower Ballaglass

To Start with we have ‘Rocks, Ballaglass Glen’, a powerful evocation of lower Ballaglass. The light filtering through to the smouldering colour of a bank awash with leaves. Ravishing autumnal glory, never fails to delight.

Bridge Ballaglass

Next up comes ‘Bridge, Ballaglass Glen’ a perennial favourite in terms of subject matter. The gorgeous trudge through the glen is neatly topped off by the visit to see the bridge and its attendant boulders, trees and shaggy ivy, all giving witness to the river in good flood after a heavy rain.

Waterfall Druidale

‘Waterfall Montpelier Glen, Druidale’ with its tangle of boughs leading us over the pool past the waterfall, on to the mellow light behind and back around again.

Tree Bole Ballaglass

Back to Ballaglass for ‘Tree Bole, Ballaglass’. A close in view of the base of a tree trunk, nestled in to the cliff. All lichen smattered and mossy green lit brightly against the inky backdrop of the cliff behind. A picture for those folk that like their natural textures up close.

Tree East Baldwin

Last up is the ‘Tree, East Baldwin Valley’. Now this tree has more than a touch of Faery about it! A little of the Little Peoples faery glamour must have rubbed off onto my brush in this painting. The seasons transitions are all special. The wild winter, the joy of spring, a balmy summer but to me nothing beats autumn. The magic of autumn through and through is truly grist to the mill of this painter.
