Delighted to say I have just SOLD this lovely oil painting “Swansea from Mumbles” direct from my Art gallery and via a visit from the buyers to my art website emmacownie.artweb.com – great how artlovers are now contacting me directly to buy artwork. The artlovers are from Swansea originally and will have a lovely reminder of Swansea on the walls their home in Wiltshire, in the West country to remind them of home. They are also collecting the painting personally which will give us a chance to enjoy each other’s company again. The best thing about selling direct is getting to know very interesting people who love one’s work. It is a much more personal and rewarding experience for both parties. Plus if artlovers make the effort to buy art this way, I am more inclined to reduce the price to reward that effort.
I am delighted to say I have just SOLD this oil painting “Winding Valley” direct to a lovely couple from Wiltshire who visited my Art Gallery yesterday.
I am so happy I am beginning to get art sales via my own website emmacownie.artweb.com and art gallery.
The gallery is available for viewing just give us a call and we can arrange a private viewing?
This oil painting is of Ilston Cwm and the bridge, over The Killy Willy, leading to Parkmill. I have painted this bridge in a number of paintings previously sold on Artfinder but this is the first painting from underneath the bridge.
What a spectacular scene there is under bridges as the sun lights the water and this reflects on the underside of the bridge. Here it also illuminates the river bed through which we see an array of autumnal colours through the translucent, rippling water. It is a magical sight and I hope I have caught some of this visual excitement in this painting.
Delighted to say I have just SOLD “Spring Coloured Woods” via Artfinder.
Now off to live with “The Bridge to Parkmill” in Lancashire – will we see an Ilston Cwm triptych adorning a wall of a home in Lancashire?
“This is the last of the summer wine of a substantial series of oil paintings of a woodland area in Gower Pensinsula between Ilston and Parkmill, which the locals call Cannisland Woods.
It is amazingly beautiful at any time of the year but the light is rarely better than in Winter when it is glassy clear and this helps create a riot of colours and hues in this most dank time, in the mulched leave-layered ground, in the trickling everchanging brook of the Killy Willy, in the distant haze behind the barren trees and in the wonderfully green-mossy trees and shiney, slippery brown barks of the twisted trees by the Killy Willy.
This is another “refractionist” (expressionist) style painting which is similar to Sapling Wood and Rainbow Wood in it’s sweeping streaks of colour but much more grand in it’s ambition and luxuriant in i’ts detail.
This will probably be the last of this series of paintings for some time so enjoy.”
An expressionist “urban folk” oil painting of a gentleman taking “time out” and a hot beverage. The warm orangy-brown and wood and brickwork contrast with the blue, hard surfaces of the road, street and passing cars. The warm, calm and relaxation with the busy, bustling city street scene outside the protecting window. Go phew with a brew.
