Painting. Oil on canvas 60x40" 

Framed in a black grained wood frame


The artwork was shown at my solo show IN FLIGHT at the Hyde Gallery in London. 


My inspiration for this piece comes from fishing with my son at a beautiful lake near where I live. Beside the lake sits a little carp pond, where the fish swim up to feed.  The lake has such beauty & peacefulness about it, that's why I called this my painting Utopia.

Using my background in design, I incorporated pattern and repeat into the artwork. Looking closely at the lily pads you will see elements of design in them. I use my own photography as a reference for my work.


Like my previous painting The Esoteric Pond I poured washes of watercolour oil, over the large linen canvas, for the water to give a natural flowing effect around the fish. I worked the oils on the fish to create a 3D effect with the scales, blending the oil paints to give depth.

I like to research current colour trends & put them into my artwork, keeping my work modern, edgy but also timelessly beautiful. 


The painting is framed in a black grained wood frame.
