This is a classic view of Cambridge. Hidden between the trees is King's College Chapel and the Gibb's Building seen from the Backs. A beautiful sight at any time of the year. Here King's is seen through the trees before the last leaves fall in the Autumn with the final light of the day set off by the gold leaf, as the sun sets.
This painting is difficult to photograph as the gold leaf sparkles and is highlighted differently depending upon the light and how it is viewed. It is one of the largest paintings I have ever produced and it really stunning.
I paint detailed, dream-like images in oils and acrylics, on canvas which incorporate rich night skies and a shining moon. Stories inspired by the detail and pattern of medieval art, tapestries and my imagination. My work is very influenced by the wonderful city of Cambridge where I live.
Photographs can never do justice to my paintings as they change when the light catches the silver or copper leaf. If you would like to view my actual paintings please contact me to arrange a visit to my studio. My work can also be seen at Byard Art, 14 King's Parade, Cambridge CB2 1SJ, opposite King's College Chapel.
